Ease on Down the Road
So, I was on my way to a meeting yesterday afternoon, after the beginning of a rain shower, and I could not believe what I was seeing in the road. Could it be a super huge turtle? Yes, it was. I knew I only had a few moments and I wasn't particular about standing in the road, but I had to get some kind of shot of this creature.
I parked my car, threw my jacket over my head to shield myself and my little camera from the rain, crossed the street and snapped a quick shot. By then, another passerby stopped by and tried to help shoe the turtle out of the road.
It all happened so quickly after that moment. A man blew his horn to hurry another car by, whisked his truck around and got that huge snapping turtle to crawl into his bucket never to be seen alive again - I'm sure. The first passerby to stop starting crying, I took one last shot (with my camera) and felt a twinge of remorse for that turtle.
I guess now s/he will become turtle soup.
