“Very Small” – Painted Turtle at Stouffville Reservoir

“Very Small” - Painted Turtle at Stouffville Reservoir

“For the newborn and wise, everything begins small.”
― Suzy Kassem

Once more, the unexpected, on a very familiar walk. I’m not sure where this little fellow started out from, but he’s about the size of a quarter and looks to be freshly hatched. He was sitting on a gravel walking path and eventually made it to this grassy section. One thing is for certain, he has a long and perilous journey ahead of him, as sea gulls are always on the prowl for turtles after the spring hatch and it was a long way to the safety of the pond. Hopefully, he made it.
