Out of the Blue

There are a couple of trees overturned into the water of the pond behind our townhouse, including the one right next to us I mentioned recently. Oddly, is the snapping turtle that lives in the pond has shown a penchant for climbing onto the parts of these toppled trees that stick out of the water. He's out there right now on his favorite such perch as happy as a clam. We had snapping turtles in the lake near my summer camp, and none of them ever seemed interested in climbing out of the water like this. I guess some of us just enjoy a good sunbath.
