Little baby slider. No more than 2 inches in diameter and feel like that is overestimating size.
Cedar, cypress? Don't know my trees and need to. This one was HUGE. As tall as the third story of the old historic building it stands next to. Quite beautiful.
Was acting peculiar. Never seen one do this. Sat on ground all fluffed up. Cocking his head side to side. Eventually flew into the bush right in front of him. Odd.
Obviously red-eared slider in front. What is the one in background?
This sucker was huge. And he literally stalked me. Thought sure he was going to attack. I walked up to the edge of the pond looked down and saw him creeping slowly closer and closer. Moved away to the side and he followed. Creeped me out. But cool to look at.
Is this a spiny softshell turtle?
Was in Austin for a wedding. So had to stop by and see the Peregrine that has occupied the clock tower last couple of years. Unfortunately did not have my long lens or much time. Best shots I could get.
Rabbit scats on a 2 logs. I would expect more for swamp rabbit latrine, but there was recently a big flood here and there hasn't been time for it to build up scats
In my front yard
Heavily gravid female, found under a lone roadside board.
