Well, I thought I would visit the local arboretum. The lady told me when I grabbed a map to be careful because it was mating season for the reptiles. But we had left the trail she said I would *cough* see things on. This was the wooded trail. So I was just walking along minding my own business when I ran into this couple.

Of course I had to take a picture because how often do you run into this? I did feel kind of odd about it though.


Let me know if it offends anyone... I just thought it was a really good nature shot.

ha ha ha ha!!! Ron, this was many many years ago and unfortunately, or maybe fortunately depending how you look at it, i didn't have a camera with me. I just said hi to them and they continued on just like the turtles.

You know what? I did a quick softening to the background of the picture this morning just jacking around with it and I'm not sure I like it. I mean, it doesn't look natural. It looks photoshopped and not very well I might add. LOL

This looks better I think. What do you guys think?
