Peculiarities – Twists and Turtles

Today while I was searching for flowers and foliage to press I came upon a twisted swirl of yellow. A twist so unique and perfect for this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge I raced back home to get my camera hoping my subject would be true to its nature and not move away too quickly.

He was still in place when I came back with my camera in hand. Although he glared an unfriendly warning at me with his orange eye, I took several good photos.

Even more peculiar was the sight of one of his woodsy pals crossing the road (To get to the other side I wonder???) when I returned home. I took a photo of him too before I helped him across, out of the way of oncoming cars.

I see Eastern box turtles at least once a season, but it is rare to see more than one on the same day. When I came home I found a four leaf clover in the yard. Some luck! All in all I think this post is perfect for Cee’s Oddball Challenge.

      Thanks Susie, I was thrilled to see him. So strange to see two in one day though…they are usually under the cover of brush or fallen trees in the woods.

      So many beautiful photographs. My favorites are the eyes, I think they must be yours, the photograph of the field, beautiful composition, and of course, the adorable little boy. The group shots are also good. Keep posting!
