Found a snapper I thought was dead, heron-flipped and headless – but in fact she’d either been flung or fallen into a wedge of stone with her head stuck under her own shell (ouch).
Flipped her over, and here’s what happened.
Gilgamesh was very courteous – and pleased with himself for supervising a happy ending.
The great blue heron who had been perched just overhead was not so happy with us, but has plenty else to eat. Close call for turtle!
