I walked nearly every day last week. We tried Alexia’s Spicy Sweet Potato fries with chipotle pepper flavor and they are great! I’ve lost three pounds, mostly due to being sick. Okay, I’ve talked about exercise, food, and weight loss…moving on to turtles. LOL
I love turtles! Had several as pets when I was a kid, before all the disease problems that made them more difficult to buy in pet stores. In case you don’t remember, they used to be as plentiful as goldfish and you could buy a cheap dozen almost anywhere.
So I love to watch turtles at the pond. The trouble is that you simply cannot sneak up on a turtle unless it is almost comatose. I’m usually forced to watch them from here, with my binoculars. Once or twice I’ve seen a couple up close in the water during my walks.
Yesterday I was strolling down the side of the pond, which I don’t do very often. I could see a couple of turtles sunning themselves on a stump ahead of me. Of course as soon as I got close they were gone. But I decided that since it was a lovely afternoon I would “wait and see” if they would return. I’m not going to tell you how long I stood in the shadows before I saw a little head pop up, but it surely seemed like an eternity. However, I was rewarded for my patience with these shots of a little turtle AND if you look closely, there is a dragonfly in a couple of the shots! Good things come to those who wait.
Also took four hundred shots of some random critters and things here and there. I’ll post a few in an album later. Some of them aren’t focused and fabulous, but that isn’t the point now is it? J
Have a glorious day!
