Found a snapping turtle when wandering up a creek this weekend. You can watch it really try to repeatedly bite me in the video at the bottom of this page. 85mm isn’t the best birding lens but really cool to see owls out in the neighborhood. A kinder, gentler baby turtle.
You might have heard. We had some snow. We don’t have much for hills around here. My neighborhood was likely a swamp in the recent past. The mound of snow you can see in two of the shots represents quite a lot of shoveling on my part.
