Return Of Gamera

I stepped outside to see this guy or girl yesterday. A snapper?

Its back has duckweed on it, so I well assumed it came from the wetland behind my cottage.

I left it alone for awhile, and when I returned, it was nowhere in sight.

The wetland behind the cottage, in a gully. The bright green stuff in the back is duckweed. After I took this photo, two mallards floated by.

Not that this has anything to do with that, but on the porch. The spiders will be dragging me out of the cottage on Sunday, just like the beetle.


  1. That turtle is pretty cool! I brought a similar one home when I was eleven (my friend and I found it in the local ditch). My mother of course took it back to the ditch where we found it. Boy did that picture take me back.


If I do not respond to your comment right away, it is only because I am busy pulling out buckthorn, creeping charlie, and garlic mustard...
