Turtle, Turtle Burning Bright

Here's a little treat for all you terrapin fans out there. This little box turtle crossed my path this afternoon, and I was obliged to take his picture. All turtles carry their house along with them, but only the box turtle can shut the doors to that house. You can see in the picture below how he is able to close up tight against any predators, or pesky photographers.

And just to show you what he looks like up close, here's a close up picture of this little guys shell.
