Slow Down for Turtles!

One of the joys of summer is seeing wildlife. And despite staying more close to home during this pandemic summer, I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to see wild creatures right in my own neighborhood.
I’ve already posted a bunny sheltering under a lawn chair during a rainstorm and an unusual beetle. Another day we had an impressive visitor across the street from us, apparently burying her eggs:

Huuuuuuge snapping turtle laying eggs on our across-the-street neighbor’s front lawn

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was impressed that, despite the fact that snapping turtles do live up to their name, after all, the neighbor roped off the area to protect the eggs.

And soon afterwards another neighbor created this sign!
