Proof I Live in a Swamp

snapping turtle

I'd dig out my snapping turtle recipe but the little fellow is just too cute.

Sure, it’s not a big swamp, but swamp it is nevertheless. Today I collected an interesting bit of photographic evidence, the first snapping turtle of the year just across the road by the mailbox.

If you should stop by for some reason be careful of the watch possum on the front porch. He bites.
