February sun turtle reflection by natureguy February sun turtle reflection by natureguy
Hi, Here's another shot of the Sun Turtle I saw while out for a bit this afternoon.
 Strange to see it out so early,considering this part of the marsh had ice on it yesterday.I guess it wanted to get a head start on 2016...only a month earlier than normal for them.
Enjoy this little early spring gift!

this is what the woods looked like last year this date.....

Hi Tony, Thank you!
   Yup I never thought I was going to find this yesterday...heck, last year I still had 34 inches of snow on the ground at this time! I normally don't find them out till the last week in march at the earliest. This one is out way before that! I wonder if this is an indication of me having a hot dry summer like last year. This does give some credence to the overall warming of the environment..

It has been one weird year. It was 58 Sunday and 56 today. But cooling off fast, they are predicting 3" of snow Tuesday with the temperature dropping to 16! Our biggest snow fall of 8" came on November 15th

Hi, yeah it was a warm one yesterday...but even then the water temps were just above freezing....so it's still strange for this one to be out.
