What a great turtle photo! I love turtles. We have been out in our kayaks and have seen so many painter turtles lately. I haven't been able to maneuver getting a photo and keeping the kayak still and afloat though.

Judy said...

great shots, Carletta! I especially like the second shot, where I can see the expression on her face, and a little bit of breakfast!
No, I did not bring any of the morning glories home, although maybe I should have. I have some self-seeded Grandpa Otts that I should tie up, so what is one more?

Beautiful box turtle in the light!

You are right: the wild tomcat lounging on my chair looks like a tiger in that pose. But he was too hot and tired to run away when he saw me coming close with the camera.
