Long Description:
Dover-Crescent Road connects Dover (a wide spot on Highway 81) to Crescent (on Highway 74). This red-eared slider was crossing the road from south to north this morning. Traffic was light so I was able to stop, get a few photos, and see him (her?) safely to the other side. That dark spot around him is just what you think it is.

Note: while Oklahoma is home to many species of turtle, if you see one on dry land it's almost certainly either a common box turtle or a red-eared slider.

Describe what happened. Example
"Mother Blanding had made her nest between the goldenrod and bluestem outside my window late last June.
By chance we were sitting on the porch when we noticed little blandings in the same location we had seen the mother take 2 months earlier."
