Schnee von Gestern

This morning there was some snow still on the roof of the gazebo, and on our dock. The snow was gone by this evening. Still, here are 3 impressions from 8AM:

Then we drove over to an alvar to see some snapping turtle egg shells, their nest, and a freshly hatched "hatchling":

The female snapper layed some 30 eggs in several clutches - this one was either the 4th or 5th clutch - in June, near a compost heap some 15m from a stream:

The turtles had been hatching out over the past week and were checked into this stream:

We hope that they will do well.
