Wood Turtle for Saturday Critters

Tthis is turtle season in my area. Daily I see Painted turtles and I am waiting to see the big Snapping turtles laying their eggs.  Yesterday I saw a turtle species that I seldom see, a Wood Turtle!  I think it had been in the  process of digging a location to lay its eggs as the soil was disturbed there as I came along.  the bright red on its legs and neck signified to me that it was a Wood Turtle


 I am linking today to Eileens Saturday Critters which can be found at
