Header Challlenge: 'What's Buggin' You?'

This week's challenge from Lanny was an easy one because I had a few photos of my favorite bug eaters, the local turtle population.  What really bugs me, though, is that these guys are the most vulnerable jaywalkers here in the suburbs.  (Click here to "Meet Mother.") Not a day goes by that I don't come across the fragments of a shattered turtle shell and the flesh of their remains smeared in the road.  Makes me nuts.  If you care about these amazing reptiles, please sign the petition on the right in support of their cousins the leatherbacks.

Also, please have a look at the other head bangers whose blogs are listed below my banner.  They are wonderful photographers.

  4. you are certainly an advocate of your favorite bug eaters. We have some protected ones here too the desert tortoise and they are fenced in a desert preserve set apart for them, so they don't cross any streets.

  5. Poor turtles. Why are they crossing the road? Are they going someplace?

    This morning the news said the ocean is dying and if we do not stop everything immediately it will be dead in this generation.

    Sorta makes you shudder.

  6. my fellow turtle fan!


    The Hawaiian Sea Turtle has made such a recovery since the 70s that there is talk of removing them from the endangered list!

    Not 'open season' but cultural culling may be ahead to maintain the reef balance....mixed feelings indeed!


    Aloha from Honolulu :)

  8. Sandy, I could barely look at the link of the smashed turtle. I'm really sorry to hear it. I love turtles. They are so cute. By my job, they have baby geese and their parents. Usually, I keep an eye out to see if cars will actually stop. Thanks for sharing your photos with us.
