30 Day Photo Fun! Day 10- Animal

I really wasn’t sure what kind of animal I would be able to capture today. In desperation I would have hunted down an ant pile in order to capture an ant but I didn’t have to do that. Thank goodness.

As my daughter was out in the garden she heard something under the green pepper plants and lo and behold this fella came rushing out at her. Okay maybe he didn’t come rushing out but there he was the perfect specimen for today’s challenge.



This is one of a few box turtles that make our yard their home. I have a smaller one that comes up on the front porch and eats the dead bugs. I’ve named him Simon. LOL!


Isn’t he cute?

Goodbye Mr. Turtle. Back in the garden you go.


What fun animals do you have in your backyard?

Have a FABULOUS day my friends!
