It's a good life.
When I hear YOU say "YIKES!, I have to make that the first click of the day.LOLYou're right, poor boxy.
Thanks for sharing, I think.
Ouch! Could the turtle actually die from this?
I had to enlarge the photo to see what it was! Holy cats, those are a LOT of mosquitoes! Poor thing - no wonder it's got a rather angry look to its eye!
OMG! I never would have imagined. ~karen
Evil arthropods. They are always causing grief. You need to make our friend a tiny bee-keeper hat (he probably wouldn't appreciate being sprayed with DEET).
Ouch! Makes me itchy just looking at it!
FC,Well, you know how the ranger business is -- you have to deal with all sorts of things ;)Pablo,Just makes you want to come visit the swamp, doesn't it?woodswalker,My sentiments exactly.gillesarbour,A smaller turtle may die from the loss of blood, but I think this one will probably be okay. He moved on a couple of minutes after I took this picture. Hopefully he moved to an area with fewer mosquitoes!Ellen,If I could have reached him, I would have done some skeeter swatting for him.KaHolly,It does look odd to see mosquitoes on reptiles, but it happens all the time. I see them on frogs and toads, too.Hugh,I could make a fortune if I could sell little bug hats to all the wildlife here!Garden Lily,Roger that!
