Box turtle

This Eastern Box Turtle seemed to be enjoying the pleasant summer afternoon.

Great picture.

I just saved one of these from the road grader this week. Heard grader coming down the dirt road, looked out the window, saw a tutle lump half way across, and ran for it.

After sprinting across the yard it occured to me I had no way to handle it if it turned out to be a snapper. I was so happy when I spotted the yellow.

Mr. Box Turtle was successfully moved to a large blackberry patch at the back of our five acres. Looks like it's going to be a bountiful crop this year. Hope he sticks around to enjoy eating some of them.
