Caption: I thought it was so funny that she took the stone pathway to the dock to get back to the lake. Look how close she laid her eggs (dog's leash on the left bottom corner) to the pathway. From shot I to V it was 38 minutes.

Oops, Wilma, Alan's story was so long that I didn't see your comment above his. I had to laugh at your story. I wouldn't get any closer either. Thanks for looking at the entire series.

What a story, Alan. Thanks for taking the time to write and share it. You are very right on the moral of the story.

I am so glad that you enjoyed the details of my story. Thanks for looking at the entire series. Sorry for the delay of my response. Things have been too rough on my side.

Very cool series, and thanks for all the details - I was curious about total time. I had a snapper lay eggs in my yard (again) a couple of weeks ago, but I didn't see her do it. Before I could decide how I felt about that, something dug them up and ate them - probably racoon, maybe skunk or opossum. I'm sure she couldn't dig much of a hole, because it's zoysia and other tough grasses. But that's her spot, year after year, even though it was dug up for a septic line, later regraded, etc., and I don't think she's gotten results in at least six years. She climbs up the steepest and highest (30ft) bank on the whole pond, ignores the newer level area which would be easy digging, and goes over the crest to the south-facing slope - sloping away from the pond. I would have assumed the hatchling's instinct was to go downhill, but there must be more to it. A lot of work for nothing, but that's her spot.

This is how we do it, whether it works or not! Sounds almost human...

Very impressive series, Belle! Isn't nature just amazing? I've only seen a turle lay eggs once, and it was a HUGE snapper nesting on the shoulder of a road just above a big lake. Needless to say, I didn't get this close! *smile*

About belletrouvaille


May 19, 2010: I carry my camera everywhere since I never know what I will encounter on my way. That is why I added "trouvaille" (good find) to my name. Didn't my dog find a good one to cuddle by? It had been a long sleep since I decided to post on WunderPhotos. (it still took me a month after I registered with it) This is more fun than Facebook! (though I have never had a Facebook account) Thank you for all your amazing photos that have inspired me day by day! Notes: 1. I don't edit my photos other than slight cropping, though I am aware of the old ways of changing results in the darkroom and admire what people can do nowadays on the computer. 2. With very few exceptions, I post photos in a series in chronological order from left to right and don't jump dates back and forth.
