Our youngest son brought me this turtle from his trek in the woods. He is now living again in the wild (turtle, not Son). Son's good at remembering where he got stuff for me to shoot.

I hope this is "National Enquirer Geographic" enough for you. *wink*

He was a good model... not a great one... but a good one. He got one small grub, and over thirty worms presented to him for his banquet before he was released.

Life is good, even when it's not.
