|Blandings Turtle in the middle of the trail|
Yesterday, Anika and I took Rolex and Harley out for a ramble in the woods. Anika has ridden the trails enough now to begin getting her bearings. Just as Harley stepped over an odd rock, Anika noticed it was a turtle. I believe it's a Blandings turtle, a species thought to be endangered in our area. Hurrah for Harley--for once he picked up his feet enough to clear the turtle! He actually stood still long enough for me to get a picture (although his rein got in the way).
