With the rain

Come the most unusual things, like this baby Snapping Turtle that wandered into the yard.  We have a lot of ponds around us, most are dried up with the lack of rain this summer, when the skies finally poured forth rain today this fellow ended up outside the dog run gate.  Barking from Hope and Cutter alerted me to what I thought was a toad, instead 2 inches of armored shell.  I kept him around for a couple of hours to watch and photographed, then slipped him into the muddy area of what use to be a good sized pond.  Hopefully he will not come back, would hate for the dogs to maul him.
