TURTLEWritten by D.M. Stanfield | | email@example.com
Faster than Car Stereo One’s Scuba Steve can say “turtle,” this little rascal popped out from under a cluster of dandelions. I spent Friday morning contemplating the common elegance of the noxious weed, and while I was zooming in for a close-up, a startled baby wood turtle made a hasty exit, scarcely allowing enough time to snap a photo. Perhaps I am not turtley enough for the Turtle Club?
