Why, hello!

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.

Why, hello!

    Whenever we find a box turtle, we paint the year on the underside with nail polish and have found it interesting to have “return” visitors from year to year. Great shot. I think he was as curious about you as you were about him, perhaps more so! One thing for sure, you didn’t intimidate that little guy.

    Did you help him to get where he should be? Cute little guy
