Here and There, Around and About

Some shots taken on Thursday and today while out and about.

Swamp Aster by Hazard Rd.; another sure sign that Autumn is on the way. Taken Thursday.

A baby Snapping Turtle by Gooseneck Cove. From Thursday.

A Mute Swan on Easton's Pond this morning.

  1. How large was the baby snapping turtle? I can't really tell from the pic, but the detail of it is really good.

  2. The baby Snapper was about 2 inches, including the tail.

  3. Gorgeous, as usual. Loved the Aster and the turtle.

  4. When I first saw the snapping turtle, I thought you'd been wandering about the gulf shore down here.

  5. I always wanted a turtle as a pet.

  6. When I get back to Newport, you're giving me a tour!

  7. The turtle is an amazing shot, but I may like the swan photo even better. Your photographic work is really special stuff.
