Long Trek

A snapping turtle making a long annual trek to go from the pond and across the road to find a place to lay its eggs.  They often find a soft place to dig in the mulch around our foundation plants.

In previous years I have photographed the turtle (could be the same one) using a long focal length zoom lens.  When I saw her this year I was walking Misty in the morning and only had a prime 20 mm lens on my camera.
