The weather was so pleasant today (though overcast) I decided to take the girls to the Cincinnati Nature Center, which is right around the corner from RAPTOR's new property.
You can buy a handful of fish/turtle food for a quarter...which was a big hit for the girls (and the fish and turtles)What I wasn't expecting was this. Look closely at this photo. Normal-sized, harmless turtles on the top and side...then this massive head, almost the size of the other turtles. A snapping turtle.
Excuse me while I say, "Aiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!!".
Some ladies walking by said that was Arnold, as in Arnold Schwarzenegger.I was rather excited to finally witness a nighthawk in migration tonight. Geoff and I sat and watched 10 or so fly over, in the course of 20 minutes.
My little tree-hugger. I wonder if Lorelei will grow up to be a tree doctor or something. She loves trees...the bark, the leaves, the twigs.
When I saw the moon over the peak of our house, I was reminded of 2001.
