Special Exposure Wednesday: No Turtle Soup for You

While running on trails at the US National Whitewater Center, we came across a Snapping Turtle, at least a foot long. After close examination, we realized its long sharp toe nail was stuck on the bamboo reed, making it impossible for the turtle to move and a sitting duck for any predator. We unstuck the toenail and hopefully, he made a beeline for the nearby lake.

Special Exposure Wednesday and Wordless Wednesday are featured on sites to promote photography. Join in the fun. Or if you need your photos to be accompanied by lots of words try Wordful Wednesday
at Seven Clown Circus.


  1. You were more brave than I, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be un-sticking *any* toenails :)

    Happy WW~

  2. Lucky for that turtle you came along!

  3. Poor turtle! Lucky you came along and rescued him - though you're much braver than I...a snapping turtle? You ROCK! :)
