Painted Turtle (Chrysemys picta) - 03
(Painted Turtle (Chrysemys picta) - 03) Our friend started to turn herself around, and seemed to be uninjured.  I guess I leaned a little close to take this picture and startled her, and she ducked her head back into her shell. The most common of the painted turtles are the eastern painted turtle (Chrysemys picta picta) and the midland painted turtle (Chrysemys picta marginata), which are closely related, and as subspecies, they can and do interbreed to produce offspring known as "intergrades."

Lamb - Right Lamb - Left Presented here are just a few of the countless components of God's creation.  Just as we cannot have human and animal life without water and plants, neither can we have lasting peace without love and compassion.  It is our hope and prayer that this series will motivate people to live and act in a cruelty-free manner; that we would no longer hurt or destroy each other, the animals or our environment.
