Turtles of Sleepy Hollow Lake - 03 - Last on the Log

Turtles of Sleepy Hollow Lake - 03
(Turtles of Sleepy Hollow Lake - 03) Our canoe continued to drift closer to the sunning log, and one by one the turtles slipped back into the frigid water.  We had disturbed their privacy and pleasure.  However, this turtle was undaunted and remained until we were only a few feet away, allowing us to take this picture.  In photographing these turtles, we have mixed emotions; for their sake, we don't want to intrude into their world, but for their benefit, we want others to know about these beautiful animals so that they will learn to respect and protect them and their environment.

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.
