Wood Duck
Goose and Snapping Turtle

Found this Snapping Turtle on April 29. Its shell was 10-12" from one end to the other. I did note that the Goose and a duck stayed about the same distance from it. There was also a Painted Turtle on the pile of logs to the left of the Snapping Turtle, but I couldn't get them both in frame.
