Turtle Power – Magic Moments #6

My magic moment this week is animal related again, I can see a theme developing!

This time of year is when the Snapping Turtles come ashore to lay their eggs.  I wasn’t lucky enough to see one last year so this year I was determined to.  I’d been out cycling a few times along the path that runs by the lake but I just couldn’t catch a break until early Saturday morning.  Hubbie and I had got up early to go out for a ride on our bikes before it got too hot and finally my luck changed.   We spotted a turtle laying eggs in a flowerbed of all places before she trotted off back to the lake
