A turtle, actually a terrapin, a NJ Diamondback. Lots around this time of year- egg laying season. We have a lot of Turtle Crossing signs on the roads around here in Ocean City, NJ.
This one was was probably ready to lay eggs and was looking for a spot to dig a hole. The gravel parking area was too hard. A neighbor said later that "she", the terrapin, disappeared into a flower bed and emerged some time later. The ground much softer there!

Edited in PowerDirector 8, which I haven't used in a while. Had to produce at 24fps and looks like I will have to fool with the ouput setting to get 30fps since looks like frames dropped? Hmmmm- the output file viewed on my confuser looks fine, the Vimeo version looks choppy, missing frames(?), and only 3 avail thumbnails- and those are fuzzy. So could be a Vimeo issue. I have made this vid avail for downloading in case you want to see if the uploaded version looks better on your confuser. PD8 does not have an output HD 1920x1080 setting for 30 or 60 fps! Editing video is akin to Voodoo!
