A Baby Snapping Turtle

While taking a walk on our street this morning
I discovered a baby snapping turtle in the road.
It must have just hatched.

My husband picked it up and escorted it through
the yard and woods to the brook where it swam away.

We wish it a good life!

The birds of summer through my art

I've been painting birds this summer and here are
some of them.
The endangered piping plovers and chicks are
so endearing to see in person from a distance.
Love the kingfisher and have been delighted
to see it rest on a branch over a marsh.
In our garden I caught sight of a mama finch
feeding her baby. The baby was bigger than her.

You can see those and lots more on my website.
Here's a link to the prints of birds section.
There's many categories and choices within those.

Thanks for looking!
