That Turtle on the Mound Again

Testudinate is what I titled that post with the apology for the blurry photo above.

And I must confess that I can't remember exactly where it was - as well as whether it actually was on a mound and not in a stone row.

But this morning I went through some folders to look for what I saw before and after, to jog my memory, and found a better photo of the mound/stone/rock pile/heap or whatever the Native American name was in the Quirpi dialect.

Judging from the light, it looks like mid-afternoon, and the photos say "May 13, 2009."

Stick some tusks on it and maybe it's an older creature from way, way back...

I don't think this is the backside of the turtle mound, but I could be wrong; in fact I am - there's a dog collar on the base of the tree!

And here's that nicely formed, little disturbed turtle on the mound:

What follows in my folder is a bunch of interesting stuff, all blurry, but all clustered near by. I got back in focus for a couple more:
