A Pond and It's Treasure

This is Hethwood Pond. A nice little pond
within a 7 minute drive of where I live.
On this day it was a HOT 96 degrees, so there
weren't many people out walking the path around
the pond. If you look closely you can see some
lovely benches around the pond, too :)

This was one of the treasures I found --  a BIG Turtle!

Very cool. It would totally surprise me to see a turtle at my local pond. Good stuff!

It is always a joy to behold a treasure when our eyes are open!

Nice to see a live turtle. We don't even have them (except in captivity).

The pond is in a lovely setting.
Lucky you to have captured the turtle with your camera!

Well, I can't help with the turtle identification, but I surely did like the picture. The pond looks like a great place to walk around.

Thanks for visiting my birds blog and for commenting.

I like your pond and the walk way around it. I also like the benches and tables. It looks like a nice place to just park and watch the water. But when it gets to 96 or whatever I just stay indoors.

This is a nice photograph.

This looks like such a tranquil spot to sit and enjoy. Lovely.
Great Capture on the turtle.

That is a beautiful pond! I'm going to close my eyes and pretend I'm there for a while. :) Great shot of the turtle!

Good stuff.

Another place I'd not heard of before. It's obvious I still have a lot to learn about the area!

Having such a beautiful pond near home is a real treasure with the walk way and benches around it. And the turtle photo is just great. It is impressive to me seeing it in the water.

I'm not sure what type of turtle that is, Kerri.

The photos are excellent and I enjoyed your skywatch post as well.
