Wordless Wednesday with Linky - Baby Tortoise - April 10, 2013
What a surprise we had yesterday evening when we looked out side! A baby tortoise was walking across our driveway. Not often you see this sight. We took a picture of him with a quarter so that you can see his size. We watched him as he trudged his merry way away. Hopefully this little fellow will live to get big. The ravens love to find baby tortoises, fly them up high, drop them onto the rocks to crack them open, and then eat them.
We didn't bother him long, just enough to take his picture.
Yes, I was absent last week. I wanted a little time off, but it ended up being sick leave. My cold went down into bronchitis. So I spend most of the week just trying to get better.
