Turtle update


The little turtle that wandered into our yard at the beginning of July is still sticking around. Sure makes me happy :-)

This yellow belly slider loves fish food, but is very shy.  Took me a while standing perfectly still to snap this photo. And I had to silence the clickie noise on the camera.

  1. How fun to have a turtle in the garden! I once saw a little box turtle in the garden heading for cover under a bush during a big rainstorm. I looked for him after the storm but couldn't find him again. I wonder where he went in and out of, since he was in my fenced-in backyard!

  3. Wow, a turtle in your garden! Is it a runaway from someone's home or are they native where you live? Sorry, but we don't have turtles wandering around in London so I just gotta ask! Hope he stays or is it a she?

  4. So adorable! I see box turtles meander through the garden now and then. Sometimes they lay their eggs in the beds as well.

  5. Same here, we have different turtles stop by ever so often but they keep wandering off. that is why i am hoping this little guy will stay.

  6. I am not sure if it is a girl or a boy, but this one is a Florida native. I do not believe it was a pet turtle :-)
