Box Turtle

I ran into a box turtle after watching a flock of turkeys disappear like ghosts in the woods today. Box turtles always make me smile. This one looks old and wise to me.

I'm no expert and I didn't want to bother it by picking it up, so I don't know if it's a male or female. I was content to just visit for a moment and let the turtle be a reminder to slow down and enjoy the day. Forest time is not the same as city time, and most things of the forest go unnoticed simply because we do not take the time to really see.
