NATURE NOTES

When we were at the Norfolk Botanical Garden a while ago, we walked by a small lake that had a lot of turtle activity.  As we were walking along we noticed that the turtles were following us, swimming closer and closer.  I think they must be used to people feeding them.  When we stopped so did they and they came right up to us looking expectantly.








Sorry fella, no food for you.


I am linking with Michelle's Nature Notes which you will find here.  Thank you for hosting this lovely meme Michelle.

yup, waiting for some bread or crackers. my mother-in-law used to save all her old breads, pastries and such in her freezer until she visited. then she'd feed the turtles and fish in our pond. they loved it.
