While out caching, I saw this little snapper in the middle of U.S. 52 southeast of Indianapolis. It was trying to get north across the road. How it didn't get hit was beyond me. I was able to stop and wait for a lull in traffic to help it into the grass. I don't know where it was coming from or going - there isn't any water around here that I know of. Well, I'm sure it knows more about that than I do. A close-up photo is in the gallery.

"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."
