Yesterday this female turtle came up from the lake behind the house and I followed her journey across the yard and into the Azalea Bushes where she probably found a spot to lay her eggs. I could not identify her from my book as there was none that looked like her with the smooth back and gray head. She moved very quickly and I went from window to window to document her journey! I am so blessed to see all the wildlife and nature adventures from my den windows!
I just love observing nature in my own back yard! Have a wonderful day and I hope your 4th of July was great!
