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!
My wild heart to yours...


welcome to my world of poetry said...

It's great to observe nature Kerrie.
I enjoy doing the same. Loved the pictures.

Are you able to get to my blog? I changed my template last week and the template I chose wasn't compatible with Internet Explorer.....which many of my followers use,
I now can get it on IE and on Chrome but someone sent me a message via Facebook he was still unable to get it.
If you can't obtain it can you email me at

Take care

Hi Kerrie, It is always enjoyable to watch nature. I have two rabbits that are setting outside my door as I leave to go to work. I don't know how they have managed to escape the dogs that run loose in our neighborhood. We are suppose to have a law about that, but they are never enforced or so it seems. Thanks for sharing and have a great day. Keep cool. Hugs from Your Missouri Friend.

Kerrie, I am constantly amazed at all of the life going on around you. And, you are the best at capturing and sharing photos with us.

Turtles certainly seem to have a zen to their nature.

Enjoy a new week,
