Resident Experiences Milton Nature First Hand.


A few weeks ago, we posted a video on a very old Southeastern box turtle we came across and named "Norman."

As we shared, this is the season that box turtles are out and about. One Milton resident experienced this first hand this past week.

"Saw your video a couple weeks ago about the box turtle. Tonight after I came in
from feeding our Koi in the pond, I looked out the window and saw movement by
the stone wall,"
Tom Kuehn shares, "His colors were so vibrant for a turtle - err.. tortoise. So I went out to take it's picture - of course when I got close he/she pulled their head in."

He was kind enough to forward over some pictures of his turtle encounter for our readers as well.

Many thanks to Tom for sharing this wonderful story!
