“Very little grows on jagged rock. Be ground. Be crumbled, so wildflowers will come up where you are.” – Rumi
|| There has been a snapping turtle laying her eggs on the side of the road by our house since yesterday. I went to take some photos of her this morning with the telephoto lens, as I didn’t want to get very close and disturb her (and of course there are other perfectly valid reasons not to get too close to a snapping turtle!). If they survive our world and live out their natural lives, snapping turtles live to be around 70 years old (ontarionature.org).
