Deneen and I went to the boardwalk at White Memorial last weekend. Among a lot of other cool stuff we saw this huge snapping turtle making its way to some open water right next to the boardwalk.
Just after the sun set we located a woodcock doing its mating display. As it flew up, in order to flutter back to earth making a twittering whistle with its wings, we snuck up closer and closer to its landing place. It buzzed away as I got these pictures while lying on the ground about 10 feet away.
