After seeing Baz’s post today about finding some basking Northern Map Turtles I headed over to the spot in the hopes of finding them. As I got there I soon found a Painted Turtle and two large Snapping Turtles in a Pond. In Another pond I found some Green Frogs and within minutes I found the basking Map Turtles. I sat there photographing them with my feet in the water and a symphony of birds calling all around me. The river was calm and everything was tranquil as I watched the light bounce off the water and dance among the trees. Seeing I was on a fire ant colony I soon got up and headed home. Not five feet from where I was sitting however were two large snapping turtles fornicating. The male darted off leaving the female confused as to where he scampered off to.
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.
