Nature’s Old School of Slapstick Comedy: Bird vs Turtle

Nature’s Old School of Slapstick Comedy: Bird vs Turtle

Kayaking through Silver Springs State Park in Florida…

While a turtle was sleeping & basking in the sun on a log in the water, a bird swooped down and landed right beside him. I guess the bird didn’t like the 30 degree angle he had landed on because he took one look at the nice flat angle the turtle was resting on and decided to put one talon on top of the turtle’s shell. In one sweeping motion, the turtle was flung backwards and into the pond! lol, poor thing.. The bird then moved onto the flat surface of the log and looked around, like he did nothing wrong.

Turtle, pond, Florida
This is not the turtle in the story, but this turtle was nearby

Through my own actions I hope to inspire & encourage others to get out, explore and discover the beauty that is all around.
