Wood Turtle Crossing the Road


 It seems to be my destiny lately to see a lot of turtles.  Usually it is Snapping Turtles but this morning I encountered a Wood Turtle crossing the Mast Road at Three Tree Creek!


 The legs and neck casing of the Wood turtle is patterned with red, rather pretty I think!


 The shell of the Wood turtle is patterned in whorled ridges and splashes of yellow!
A slight view of the underneath of this turtle can be seen in this sideways view above.

Very pretty. So dangerous for them though, crossing that road. I hate to think of the many that didn't make it.
