Open Wide!

If you think this looks different than your average turtle, then you're right. It's actually a decent-sized snapping turtle I spotted on one of our hikes, apparently having ventured from the water during the recent rains. It was getting pretty warm out when I got this shot, so I'm hopeful he was able to find his way back to where he belonged.

By the way, have you guys seen my new blog button yet?
