Piggy Back Ride.

March 18, 2012

I decided to go to the Looking Glass River today and see if the wildlife was stirring about yet. The river was high and easy to navigate but there wasn't a lot of wildlife activity. I saw these turtles warming up in the sunshine and I had to laugh. I have never seen turtles giving a piggy back ride. What a hoot!

I left the Looking Glass and went north to the Maple River flooding just north of St. Johns. I saw flocks of Red Wing Blackbirds, an Eagle, an Anhinga an a few Tree Swallows. This one was showing off so I just had to take a couple of pics. All in all it was a lovely day. Pretty amazing for the middle of March.
