A Beast!

I heard a rustle in the tall grass along the wetland. This was a major rustle. What could it be? A deer laying low? A turkey? Maybe even a bunch of snakes awaking from a winter snooze?

This is what finally turned up---a major sized snapping turtle. As it eyed me from a distance, I waited for another rustle to make itself known. This one was smaller and ended up being a bird that headed directly for the snapper. Soon the snapper was eyeing the bird instead of me. I held my breath and for a minute it looked like snack time for the turtle. But at the last minute the bird awoke from its spring time jaunt and really took a look at that big rock in front of it and realized it for what it was and flew off.
