Cool sight on a run: 10 turtles parked on a pipe

10turtles

I don’t know where this pipe came from, but when Colleen and I went for a run/walk along Bluffton’s Wabash River on Sunday word had obviously already gotten around among local turtles about the new primo spot to catch some rays. Each turtle had its head and neck extended as much as possible to catch the maximum amount of sun. When we stopped to watch — and later when Bob showed up with his camera to take a photo for the paper — most of them would scramble into the water with a surprising amount of speed. If we stayed quiet, though, they’d all climb right back up again.

    Cool. I’ve caught a couple of turtles on a log along the Mississippi where I live, but this is a record number of turtles! 🙂
