Artist's Description

In June 2008 I watched a snapping turtle lay her eggs. In August I went back in time to watch 2 of the babies emerge from the nest. You can see the hole in the ground where it had to climb out. Taken at Wildwood Lake & Sanctuary in Harrisburg PA

update
I received a call on 2/18/2009 from the Pennsylvania Fish & Game Commission that a photo of this little fellow won first place in their 2008 photo contest, in the amphibian, reptile,invertebrate category! (I’d also entered a photo in the waterway scenics category) It will appear in the next issue (march/april 2009) of their magazine Pennsylvania Angler & Boater.

The coolest part of all is that it was taken with a point & shoot camera!
