Wild of the Week: Turtle in spray

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Can you figure out what the spray is from in this turtle photo by Ellen Riedesel?

wotw09-23-12turtle.JPG

She photographed this turtle while her husband Pete and their youngest son Cam were fishing on Evergreen Lake.

``Can you figure out why the mist [in the photo]?'' Pete asked.

I did.

(It's spray from one of their casts.)

Usually this time of the year, I am running Buck of the Week: Unplugged, but, again, this photo was too interesting to pass up.
