Eastern Box Turtle Busted: Enjoying a ripe tomato   35 comments

Turtles are on the top of my list of favorite reptiles. We have many turtles living all around our little spot called home and apparently they love tomatoes as much as I.


He does not look very pleased to have me taking his photo but I cannot help myself from capturing great pictures.




He hung around as I gathered the ripe or ripening tomatoes. He hissed a little when I picked him up for a photo. I returned him to dine on the best of the tomatoes in my garden.


Enjoy your day!





The Triplets: Deer Outback   3 comments

Although a bit fuzzy I managed to get a few photos of the young triplets through a window this morning.

Notice the little one resting in the meadow surely from gazing on to many fresh green acorns. The mama is down field to the right having her breakfast.

I decide to sneak a few shots outside.

The sounds of my camera plus our barking dogs do not make for a peaceful photo shoot. The young triplets take off in a flash with mom close behind.

Please overlook our pile of projects and enjoy sight of the deer family in action.

Enjoy your day!
