Once again we welcome author Melissa Stewart to the blog!
the last few weeks, I’ve been reviewing final art from uber-talented
illustrator Higgins Bond and making final edits to the text for my 2013
book A Place for Turtles. So it seems fitting that my husband, brother-in-law, and I took a trek to the Oxbow Wildlife Refuge in Harvard, MA.
Not only is it truly a place for turtles. It's turtle heaven. Really.
at this picture. Do you see also those shelled reptiles. There are
literally hundreds sunning themselves on logs sticking out of this
wetland. And don't even get me started about the frogs. I've never seen more of the leggy leapers in one day.
Peter caught a the painted turtle above, so I could get a close up image. Then he helped it cross the trail.
we spotted this giant snapper crossing the trail in front of us. After
snapping a few action shots, we watched and documented it plunging into
the water. Awesome!
What a great day!
