If you have followed my blog for long, you know I am Mother Nature; feed just about all creatures. Gammera and his wife remain at the farm pond, though I have thought about bringing them to the city lake. You'll have to type in Snapping Turtle at the top left of the page to see posts of Gammera. Anyway, the lake we have out back is full of water turtles. They line up on rocks or land or logs to sun during the day. As you can see, I still don't know how to crop my photos or anything relating to pictures.
They have terrific eyesight and jump into the water when you get too near them, but always arrive before the fish when there is food in the mix as they are quite the scavengers of the waterways. Won't be long before they dig down in the mud and hibernate till spring. Some of these guys are as big around as a peach basket. Others not so much. This smaller one decided to swim over to watch me watch him.
