Painted Turtle ~ now you see him...

Photo by BarrytheBirder
A Painted Turtle moves about a pond on the newly connected, Tom Taylor/Nokiidaa Trail between Newmarket and Aurora and only the very watchful see it appear, like a surfacing submarine under the Duckweed and algae.    Fellow blogger, Anna, of 'Living in Aurora', wrote to say that Black-crowned Night Herons, which I wrote about earlier this week, have also been seen and photographed on the Tom Taylor/Nokiidaa Trail.   The Trail and adjacent MacKenzie Marsh are home to hundreds of ducks, including a few interesting cross-breeds.   Below, a home is what you make of it.
Please comment if you wish.
