Saturday Snapshot: How'd I get here so fast?
Snapshot Saturday is hosted by Alyce of At Home with Books. To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don't post random photos that you find online.
The other day as TBG was working in the front yard, he noticed some cars slowing down as they came over the hill. Then he noticed this little guy sitting in the middle of the road so he went out and carried him across the street in the direction he was heading. *sigh* My hero!
There used to be a larger one of these turtles that had a home out in our back yard but we haven't seen him for a long time. There was a turtle who got run over quite a while back and that may have been "our" turtle. This is a much smaller one. I'd like to think it is the older turtle's offspring.
** Since I couldn't reply to Edgar's
comment by e mail, I thought I would add a little note here. These are actually endangered gopher tortoises and if anyone would like to find out more about them, here is a great link.
