Mrs Turtle

I came across this snapping turtle on my walk yesterday off the path up from the lake. She was starting to dig a hole to lay her eggs.
You can see how swollen she is with eggs here.
I got real close to her and took this picture.

  2. Great capture! That has to be hard work for her to move around and dig in that condition.
