Eastern Box Turtle

boxturtle_1635This is why I love keeping the Earth clean, and also why I love walking along the Riverwalk Greenway. I get to observe wildlife such as this Eastern box turtle. This one was quite cooperative while I photographed her.

I did not disturb her, but I did touch the top of her shell gently. Turtles are not pets. Always leave them alone in the wild.
