    I was out at Sharon Woods (Sharonville, OH) earlier today right after the morning rains stopped. Saw more turtles today than I've ever seen there before. Weather must have been ripe for them.

    i'm pretty far north of you , but I have noticed when I find my turtles active , I also find the wild turtles around here active ……. I find my turtles very active in the fall , they slow down in august , every year I get worried at that time of year for not seeing some of them for weeks , they get active again in the fall and always end up turning up ........

    thank you ........my yard ...… i find taking pics of my turtles an important way in monitoring their health .....it also helps me identify each individual ..... i seldom handle them , some of them are hard to catch , I often don't see individuals for extended periods of time , it helps me know who i'm not seeing ………. finding them in a couple of the enclosures can take days of work , and even then I've missed them ...…
