A moving pebble???

May 6, 2011

Yesterday afternoon, while taking my dog for a walk, I spotted what looked at first glance like a moving pebble. A moving pebble???? I decided to take a closer look at it. The pebble turned out to be a tiny painted turtle. Just how tiny? I opted to interrupt his journey for a minute and take a couple of pictures of it on my hand to demonstrate the scale.

After that I put him back down where I found him. I hope he will have a long life ahead of him!

    Your photo just reminded me that a friend of mine asked about eating turtles. This looks difficult to do. I did not know they were good to eat.
