Dinosaur

Still Roam Earth

While out taking some bird photos I was busy admiring the beauty of the Eagle, then turned around to see this very large turtle walking across the road.  I had spotted her earlier the day before digging out a hole. Today she was heading back to the river.

 

This fine lady was returning from a egg laying trip from the dry soil of the park to ensure continued existence, I was both lucky and blessed to encounter her as she made her journey back to the river's safety.  Although she was calm and did not feel threatened by my presence, I had no desire to approach further until she was well into the brush and on her way.   I consider these encounters rare and I make memory and photographic records - then come back later to have my senses stimulated once again. What a wonderful sight.

I live at the edge of the forest in semi-moist locations, I enjoy larva, and other delights. Although I am toothless and mostly warty, I am a sight to see.
