Operation Turtle Rescue
Late last night we were checking to make sure that a giant hole in our yard hadn’t flooded. (we are putting a new pump in our well). We noticed a poor turtle had fallen in. It was too dark to try to rescue him, but this afternoon, my kids came over and helped me get him out. He seemed none the worse for the experience.
In fact, he was quite calm.
I sat on the wet ground, in the rain for about 15 minutes WAITING.
and WAITING for his little head to pop out for some pictures.
I think the wait was worth it.
I got some great close up images of this Painted Turtle. I think he’s pretty good looking!
