Having my turtle; Hammond, in Toronto I thought I would take him out one day and get some more “natural” looking photos for my website as I edit the page on Yellow-Bellied Sliders. Sliders are native to the southern United States but have been bred all over the world for the pet trade where they outgrow their families and often times end up getting released into the wild. Hammond was found in the pool in my back yard and likely got stuck in there after following the Don River to the house. I took him to the back yard to get some photos of him in part of the Don River.
I'm Mac Marzolini and I created this blog for a variety of reasons, the first of course is to open a window into what is happening in my life (cause my grandmother reads this), but also to help myself catalogue some of my favorite photos from my many adventures.
