    I know what you're going to say, that these are of two snapping turtles I spotted this morning. Well the crows have you fooled too. Maybe to the average eye these are turtles, but to someone with true ornithological training like me, I see right through their disguise.

    Look at the texture in that wing

    Just as I turned around one took off in flight. This shot will come in handy. I asked my boss for a bigger quarterly bonus, he said when trutles fly. Won't he be surprised.

    ahhhh, the dreaded north american land crawler sometimes flying crow. i've seen these and are usually ones you can easily catch on film. discarded by most crow species, these reprobates keep to low vegetation and feed on trash and other slower moving unfortunates. the unhealthy diet enables their body to conform to other more familar animals, i.e, turtles, rats, and the like.

    They looked like slugs. I thought the first one was stuck at the side of the road, as she struggled to move. I ran to the car to grab something to pick her up in, as I lifted her I realized she had dug a hole and was laying eggs. I quickly put her down, so no egg photos, then the second one started to cross the road. I stood there for 30 minutes to make sure he did not get squashed, and he made it accross to his mate.
    Thanks for the comments, hope you all enjoyed the humour.

    Ornithology is the study of birds. An ornithologist is usually a biologist who is an expert on birds. A bird scientist so to speak. Thanks for the compliments.
