I knew I liked turtles
Don't look too closely but that half-eaten mass, right foreground, was a snail. Go turtle. When I came down the path my first sight was the turtle chowing down. He/she was somewhat reluctant to come out and resume eating after I lay down a foot away from him/her. I didn't have time to wait or I could have had a small scale National Geographic moment. Oh well. Any slug eaten this year is good news because with all the wonderful rain we've been having they'll be plentiful.
