coming out of my shell

A few weeks ago, I was on a drive to Red Cloud, Nebraska, when I came across this giant snapping turtle on U.S. Highway 281 north of town. It had been raining quite a bit, and I guess he must have liked the warmth of the pavement better than the ditch or something. Anyway, I really wanted to move him out of harm’s way, so I stopped. It was such an interesting scene that I just made a bunch of photos until this woman eventually came by and used her foot to move him off to the side. What a nice surprise to come across something I’d never seen before.
