    The first two are of a mother Snapper turtle and one of her young. The green piece is an 8" access to a sprinkler cut-off. The little one was big enough to cover the top of a beer can. The final two were of a rattle snake seen on our property.

    Here's a pic of a couple wild turkey hens I spotted on my way home. There were a couple dozen turkeys in the road just prior. This was all I could capture by the time I got my phone ready.

    In the US, Canada, and Central and South America, this rare Total Lunar Eclipse of a Supermoon will begin on the evening of September 27, 2015.
    In Europe, South/East Asia, Africa, the Arctic, and in the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian Oceans it starts after midnight on September 28, 2015.

    Also called a Blood Moon this eclipse will last for about 1 hour and 12 minutes.

    I know this doesn't exactly conform to the rules this thread, but some nature lovers may be interested :D
    European wood bison (Bison bonasus) - a rare European species reproduced from the last 12 living specimens at the beginning of XX century. Now living freely in the Bialowieza Forest, Poland and Belarus.
