Tortoise in speed-trap

This little guy was running - yes, running! - across the road when I stopped my car, leapt out, ran after him and finally got the pic only after he'd got trapped in a dense bunch of grass. It's the time for breeding and for staking a claim for territory, so I see at least 3 or 4 on my way to town, and occasionally one will demolish the tastier plants in my garden.

This is a great picture. What did you do with the turtle? Some people seek them out for pets... and you have them out in the wild... wow.

I stumbled across your blog and I am glad I did.

Best regards,
Tom Bailey
