eastern box turtle

Today's 30 Days Wild (day 7) image is of an eastern box turtle that was on my walking route this morning. I never know from one day to the next what I will see crossing the road. After photographing, I placed him/ her off road. By the time I'd returned for my second walk through he or she had already gone. At least it didn't make it back onto the road.
