Yertle the Turtle


"The turtles are free- As turtles and, maybe, all creatures should be.”

There are several turtles in the pond on St. Kate's campus, but I think this is the same one sunning itself which I see whenever I am there on a hot sunny day.


ONE MORE DAY!

  6. That's a very nice photo! We had turtles in a canal behind a condo in Ft. Lauderdale. But people caught them for turtle soup. I didn't think that was very nice.

    And no, the bike on Ocala DP is not mine. A man rode up on it with two little kids in back - really cute.

  7. I want to be like this turtle..... resting on a log! Great photo. Did the turtle "plop" once you "snapped?"

  10. We have scenes like this in Costa Rica. I hope that he students on this campus do not get inspiration from the turtles when it is time to write a term paper.

  11. I also often see turtles in this position, Kate. We have an almost identical photograph taken at the Forest History Center in Grand Rapids. I have enjoyed being at St. Kate's with your photos.

  12. I love that story! Great shot. Make sure to bring an umbrella. It's raining right now and the breeze is a little chilly.
