I'm going to try firing up the blog again for 2016, especially the nature/landscape side of things. It is in desperate need of a redesign so I will be working on that while shooting for KSTV. Unfortunately the slideshows on older posts have been disabled by flickr. You can find all of my work in my gallery.

Hillbilly Bridge Turtles

Hey mom, guess what we found down at Hillbilly Bridge?
Pauly, Susie and friends Colton and Cayden






















Turtles!! What should we do with them?























How about a turtle race? OK-so that doesn't work so well with turtles.





















I know. We'll make a turtle fighting ring! Hmmm..that doesn't work either. Not even Michael Vick can get these things to fight. ;)






























Maybe we'll just let Mom take more pictures of them instead. =)

PLEASE tell me you put the box turtles back where you found them..?

We came home from the lake, but Colton finds turtles all the time and I'm sure his Papaw had him release them later.

good.. it is very important to try to release them back where they were found.. box turtles have a VERY strong homing instinct.. and they are protected in most states..

Yeah-these photos were taken only about 50 ft. from where they were found.
