Reflection's Flora and Fauna
A collection of my photos of flora and fauna, and maybe now and then,
something else that catches my attention and just will not let go.
Maybe even with little verbage, which is pretty hard for this gal.

Our Turtle and His Soft Drink

From the pond, had made his (or her) way all the way up the hill, and around the house to the front.  Found parked near Tana.  A small one.  We have had them as large as dinner plates.

* He/she looks to be a Midland Painted Turtle (Chrysemys picta marginata), as found here.  A few years ago, Man was snapped at by a turtle in our yard, maybe the Common Snapping Turtle (Chelydra serpentina serpentina) as found on the same page.
