Momma turtle at the park

Just on the edge of the playground at Jensen Lake Park, a mother turtle was likely laying eggs in a hole which she dug.

  2. You've had some unique photos this week. You must be taking advantage of the great weather by doing some great outdoor photography. That momma turtle does look encumbered!

  4. I would love to see a turtle like that! I haven't seen one in nature since I was a kid. That's a great picture.

  5. Was für ein süßes Foto. Hoffentlich kann die Schildkrötenmutter auch in Ruhe ihre Eier ablegen und hoffentlich können die Kleinen gefahrlos zur Welt kommen. Nochmals, ein echt wunderbares Foto. Ein schönes Wochenende auch Dir, lieber Leif, und Deiner Familie und Deinen Freunden.

  8. It doesn't seem like mama turtle chose a very safe place! «Louis» hopes the young 'uns hatch undisturbed!

  10. It's funny when I first look your photo in the portal. It look like a soldier's helmet.
