A while back we enjoyed a long stay in Hawaii
This was a highlight of the trip
Couldn't find a similar thread. Hopefully not duplicating. Mods move if more appropriate.

In a spot of nature amid the urban sprawl of the L.A. Basin; El Dorado Nature Center, Long Beach.

Love the first image. The way you can see the turtles limbs beneath the ripples of the water is awesome.

It had just crossed a State highway not far from the house. How it managed to make it without being hit is beyond me!
The neighbors who spotted it first where quick to scoop it up in the bucket for transporting. I'm guessing it came from a
nearby field, possibly through the mud or just out of hibernation, IDK. The nearest water is about a mile and a half away.
Not too much around here but corn/bean fields and a small housing addition.
