Well, I don't have ALL the pictures uploaded that I'd like. I take SO many pictures these days and very few of them ever get edited and uploaded. :roll:

A few days back I took my two oldest girls for a walk in the woods and we saw a three toed box turtle. I love those things. I imagine it wont be long before it starts hibernating...

A few weeks back my wife heard a sound of distress in the yard... she went out to see what it was and found a frog being eaten by a garter snake. I went out, took a few pictures, and then persuaded the snake to let go.

And today, I was cleaning some weeds and stuff out of a flower bed... putting my hands down into all the weeds to rip them up...
next thing I knew there was a rat snake trying to get away from me. I then took a few pictures and released it down the road...
This one shows how long it was... it's not full grown but you can see it's not tiny...

here it is in the cage I transported it in...

and here it is during the release...
