This adorable little guy ( I think "guy" because of his red eyes) is either a Florida Box Turtle or a Gulf Coast Box Turtle. He was sitting in the middle of an established fire line road (not recently plowed like others have been) when Buck and I came strolling by. I didn't even see him, but Buck's sharp eyes spotted him right away.
"Did you bring your camera?"
I did, but the darn "low battery" signal flashed when I turned it on. I tried anyway, and got lucky.
I was happy as a little kid at the fair when we got back home and I downloaded this picture. Seems like the woods always yield a keepsake to gladden the heart.
