For Aidan and Declan

I saw this little fellow when I was out tying up tomatoes. Its a painted turtle heading back to the pond .They only reason I can think of it being this far from the pond was to lay some eggs
I used to get a female snapping turtle lay eggs every June on the hill in front of my house .Now its covered with plants, back then it looked like a sand dune

Other then the big old snappers over in West Nyack I haven't seen a turtle in years.
The other day Matt, Bill and I were at a house in Pearl River and there was a mother and three baby wild Turkeys sitting on a pole fence in a back yard. I had never seen that before.

We don't have turkey hear yet. When the pond is low ,there is a log that is covered with painted turtles.
I don't know the last time I saw a box turtle
