Going Somewhere

After a brief face-off with a labrador retriever in our neighborhood, this turtle wasted no time getting to where it was going.

Never saw that color of shell. Very pretty. Is that your normal garden variety turtle down there?

I was in the wrong place this week and saw one hit by a car and he struggled and struggled .I had to get out and move him to the grass to expire. I felt so badly and why don't people stop??

Smart turtle. I'd get the heck away from a big dog, too.

Turtles abound. I think Jim in Terrell had one also! I love seeing them so I enjoyed your post immensely as usual. Hope you are having a great weekend!

Cute! We rarely see turtles here but in Missouri they were always crossing the road to go somewhere!

Great capture here. I love turtles.

Looks pretty large, nice shot. I have noticed a lot of turtles sticking their heads up out of the lake in our park.

As long as he still beat the hare, it shouldn’t matter how long that he took!

I hope that he got where he was going and wasn't hindered by any other neighborhood pets.

To all who wondered how the turtle escaped the dog, the turtle snapped at its nose, and the lab went along her way!
