Saturday Sparks Link Party 426

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 426!

Starting off today's party with a continuing spring theme.

Snapping Turtle at Pieced Pastimes

In the past few weeks, I have shared with you the newly born Canadian geese goslings and the wild turkey poults. Today is all about the snapping turtles. Each year, they venture from the pond, up the hill and onto our front field where they dig holes and lay their eggs. We have witnessed four so far this year.

They have the most amazing eyes! 

One can only marvel at the wonders of nature!

  2. Looks like you really get a lot of nature out where you are. :) Thanks for hosting us as well as featuring my Balsamic Strawberry Gelato - it's one of my favorites, and I hope you enjoy it as much as we did! This week, I brought by some Lemony Pasta with Capers and Greens this week - it's a quick, light, and refreshing pasta. :)

  6. Thank you for hosting the party.

    We have a lake full of turtles. They love to hang around our dock when the fish feeder goes off every afternoon. They range from tiny to huge!

    1. Thanks, Tee! We love it here and seeing all the wildlife is icing on the cake for us. What a majestic creature your horse is. It was nice to read about his adventurous life and that he is now enjoying retirement. Give him an extra carrot for me! Take care, Suzanne.

  11. Your beautiful pictures have reminded me of a story my father used to tell me. He was born and raised in Oklahoma, so he would say if a snapping turtle snaps on your finger, he won't let go until dark!!
