Painted Turtle Sunning

in face of this week’s rain and have finally started reading Hardy’s Tess of the D’Urbervilles.

It’s tough to plan a photographic expedition when they’re predicting thunderstorms and hail, though so far they’ve been largely wrong. Still, with last week’s disastrous trip still firmly in mind I’m not about to head off to the beach for the day.
