it's baby time...

I have told you about our desert tortoises, Norm, Tillie and T.R. here. It is finally cool enough to be out with my camera again. I was out photographing hummingbirds and look who decided to find me?
We won't know if she/he is a she or a he until he/she is about 10 years old. Meanwhile, there is a lot of growing to do. Right now, he or she is about 2 inches long.

P.S. I want to thank those of you who responded to my letter post below by mailing me a real letter! What a delightful surprise!

Another P.S. My other blog a photo a day keeps the blues away will start again next Tuesday.

How did you ever find something that small or how did it find you?

Hello barbara,
the young turtles are so cute. The older ones are real miracles.
Best greetings, Johanna
