Close encounter

Dini was delighted to find this migrating turtle on our neighbor's lawn recently. In this season, the turtles make the effort to migrate from one near-by lake to another. I assume it is for mating purposes, as the nearby lakes are otherwise all about the same. Except maybe, to the turtles...
Happy ST!

What fun for her. Not so much for the turtle.

Surprised to see the turtle's head is still out with Dini sniffing away. ;D
