Kindred spirit

The box turtle.  If I were to ever be turned into the animal that best represents me, there is a good chance it would be a box turtle.  It's so easy to retreat into the safety of the known.  I spent some time with this particular box turtle.  Shy at first, but then resumed the most important of daily chores, eating. 


  1. I love box turtles!
    I wonder if you washed her shell. The ones I see in my yard usually have dirt in the ridges. :)
