Turtle, Alexander Springs

©2007 Kristen S. Boyesen

This fellow was basking on a log when we paddled by in our canoe. It looks as if it may be a Slider, from the pond and box turtle family, though all I have for ID purposes is an Audubon book covering everything in Florida. That is a lot to ask of one book! If anyone knows what it really is, let me know.

Great photo! I've been to Florida three times, but in all my visits I never had the good fortune of exploring it from a canoe. Must have been a lot of fun.

There are wonderful places to canoe in Florida, and the rental was not that expensive. I want to do the whole run at Juniper Springs next time I visit, an all-day adventure through a wilderness area.

I was about to apologize for not updating the Taoist Poet to Shambhala, but see you may be switching again soon. Visitors may want to check it out before it disappears.
