Dinner with a friend

turtle-grape 1

I ran across (i.e. almost stepped on) this box turtle near the garden shed two evenings in a row.  Yesterday, I offered him some Sun Gold tomatoes, which he ignored.  This evening, I gave him some muscadine grapes, and he seemed to enjoy them very much.

Muscadines are also one of my favorite fruits, so we have that in common.

I think this is our old friend Percy Shelley, but I can’t be sure.  It wasn’t until after he ambled off into the woods and I went inside to download the photos that I discovered all my other pictures of Percy were taken from his right side.  What I can see of the scutes along his back seems to match, though.
