Here is my first entry for Becky’s Square Perspectives Photo Challenge. While I was at the Chicago Botanic Garden the other day, I came across a turtle sunning itself on a rock. The Garden has many beautiful pieces of artwork scattered about, and at first I thought that the turtle was one of those, strategically placed in a natural setting, it remained so still. I took a picture anyway to add the sculpture photo files. And then it blinked. I took more pictures and after a few minutes, just to show willing, it turned to present me with a different perspective, a little leg-stretching added for good measure. Finally, it turned some more and faced the camera. Thank you Mr. Turtle!
This is my third entry for Becky’s Square Tops Photo Challenge. From the natural wonders of our State and National Parks to the man-made cairns on Cana Island in Wisconsin, it’s always good to be top of the heap.

We may not have fairies at the bottom of our garden, but it certainly seemed like a night for seeing other-worldly creatures, there in the moonlight. Another entry for Becky’s Square Light Photo Challenge.
