Saw this turtle on the surface of a pond while on a hike in Kitty Hawk, NC area in late March 2012. 

Kitty Hawk Turtle

A day in the life of a turtle in a pond, traced out in the vegetation on a pond.

Kitty Hawk Turtle Trail

The green stuff looked like alfalfa sprouts.  The brown things were from pine trees.

Gloria:  There are some days... many days, actually, when that is exactly what I feel like.  A turtle in a pond.  I think I need to come out of my shell, and get out more.  It would prolly do me good.  Thanks for the cute pictures.

Those turtle 'tracks' are very cool - I guess the little guy just really felt like meandering around the pond. Amazing that you got a photo of him, too!

That turtle is buried in moss. Pretty good spot and interesting pics. Love your background on your blog. Where did you take the picture of the mosaic?

I have heard about paper trails, but this is the first I've heard of and seen a turtle trail:-)  His meanderings make great artwork!

Hi Karen, You are welcome.  I know what you mean, sometimes it is just easier to do the communicating online.  Hope you get out more this spring and summer!

Hi Karen, I was amazed my zoom was able to get him and the image was not shaky.

Hi Cal, Thank you.  The mosaic is from a wall in Media.  It is on the side of a walk way in the heart of the town.  Very colorful.

Hi Myrl. You know I did not even realize what I had until I saw the images on my computer.  What fun!

Hi Kristin, It was a great day for a hike, a cool breeze and we only passed 2 people on the trail.  

Hi Kwee, Thanks for that thought about a golf course, I had not thought of that!  Yes it does!

Hi Robert, Glad he found his way and was able to go straight onward instead of cirlces!

Thanks Juli!  You are welcome.
