a little egg-laying



Today's excitement was viewing a snapping turtle laying a whole slew of eggs. They sure do lay a LOT of eggs! Several eggs were already in her hole when we arrived on the scene ... and then we witnessed Mrs. Turtle plop out egg after egg after egg after egg. Lots of eggs! Can I say anymore about the eggs? I don't think so :)

Nah ... she seemed rather oblivious of her audience. That is, if a turtle can be oblivious :)

That's a crazy-looking turtle with her spikey-edged shell! Interesting! So many creatures to observe this time of year, eh?

That was fun to see and educational, too! That turtle looks prehistoric!
