Turtle Crossing, Prospect Park

Turtle crossing, Prospect Park

Walking in Prospect Park in Brooklyn this morning, I noticed a turtle crossing a wide road that winds through the Park. I wasn’t ready to get that picture but captured this as he (or she) made his way back to the safety of the water! He was scampering along. (The road he crossed is to the left; the turtle is on the sidewalk at this point, and the lake – his destination – is to the right.)

On his way to a Fourth of July picnic perhaps?
