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.

Thanks to Jennifer of 'On a flesh and bone foundation': An Irish History for a shout out for Reflection's Flora and Fauna. What a nice surprise to find while I was nursing my AM mug of coffee.
