We were walking along the Sanford Farm trail on Nantucket Island when we came across this painted turtle.
Itty-bitty, probably recently hatched, but still plenty disgruntled at being man-handled. That wasn't a come-hither wink. We moved it just off the main path so the galumping runners and dogs wouldn't crush it.
Several days later, we saw a larger (hand-length) version at the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary. The painted turtle is our most common regionally, but these were the first I'd ever seen. Until recently, I was not looking.
Ipswich River has a vernal pond that was delightfully fecund. Besides the bugs, a leap of frogs. This big boy is probably a bull.
This one, for obvious reasons, is called a leopard frog.
