Day 11 - A Photo of Me Taken Recently

I had to choose between a few different ones: a photo of me on our recent Alaskan cruise, a photo of me fossil hunting in the desert, or playing guitar at our campsite. In the end, I chose this one because turtles are COOL! If you're wondering about the black thing on the turtle's back, it's a radio transmitter. This gravid female had been captured the night before and given an ID number, weighed and measured, and fitted with a transmitter. Then, she spent the night in my car. This photo was taken right before she was released back into the lake the next morning. Then, over the next few days, her radio frequency was monitored each evening in the hopes of finding her out of the water and laying her eggs.
