I was just about to hop in my car this morning when I spied this little guy looking up at me.
My first reaction was scream a little bit and jump out of my skin. I like wildlife, but at comfortable distance, you know? I’m SO glad my husband wasn’t home to laugh at me.
I’m a wuss.
After the initial shock of nearly stepping on a turtle (and after I convinced myself that I couldn’t hide from it all day), I went inside and grabbed my camera. This was some major bravery for me. I was down on the pavement just a few feet in front of him snapping photos.
