Driving home yesterday I nearly crushed this poor turtle on our driveway. I scared him out of his wits by nearly taking his head off with my tire and then tormented him even further by taking pictures of him. I was so tempted to take him home and give him a name but I figured he would be much happier in the creek, which I think he must have been on his way to. What must it be like to be a turtle? "Hmm...I think I'll be thirsty in about an hour...guess I better head toward the creek..." And then an annoying girl stops you to take your picture after nearly killing you...and all you wanted was to get to the creek before you died of dehydration. Who knew being a turtle could be so stressful?
But he sure is cute...isn't he? :)
