Close Encounters of the Turtle Kind

Our farm has a county drain running through it, right alongside the road. We have all sorts of wildlife that live in our ditch, but we've never seen this scene before.

We think it's a she, and we think she's laying eggs. What do you think? Other than taking her photo, we left her alone. Anyone want to take a guess what kind she is?

And then another day, much further away from the ditch, the girls found this little guy.

He was mighty cute. Hope we didn't disturb his life cycle by picking him up. The girls put him right at the edge of the ditch.

Apparently, it's a good year for turtles.
