A Couple of Critters

I took a long walk at Audubon yesterday toting the camera… Couldn’t resist taking a few shots of our latest adoptee – we’re calling her “Angel Wing” because of the condition of her wing.

Angel Wing

She cannot fly and will most likely spend the winter in Audubon’s backyard where we keep a portion of the pond free of ice through the use of a bubbler, and where she will munch on birdseed kicked out of the feeders by other birds.

I also happened on this fellow, soaking up some late afternoon sun:

Painted Turtle

He’ll be fine under the ice of the pond through the winter…

In the meantime, let’s all enjoy autumn together…

  1. Oh my! It’s so cold here. The turtles are far below the surface. The leaves are falling like mad. I swept the deck twice this afternoon, and it is covered again. Here comes winter!!!
