A Photograph of a Turtle at the Norton Simon Museum of Art...



This photograph is of a turtle who was in the pond and garden area of the Norton Simon Museum of Art.  This is the only time I can recall having seen a turtle there, and he looked none too pleased at being spotted.  He seemed to be saying, "paparazzi please, this is my me time;" but he was so cute I couldn't resist taking a quick photo of him...

I once rescued a turtle that was hit by a car .. I took it to my vet (she had to amputate one of its legs.
I kept the turtle till we had to move, then my vet took it.
A good friend of mine named the turtle "Lucky"

Love this turtle ...so cute!

Thanks so very much Laurie, Leovi, Margie, Nicole, Christine, Deepa, and Stacy!

Margie, you are so sweet to have rescued that turtle! I love the compassion you have.

Nicole, I'd love to do some Halloween art, I'm so slow though, I'm probably already too late (although I may try anyway)...
