The spiny soft shell turtles come to the shores of North Hero State Park to lay their eggs. In the waining light of evening they can be seen floating just off shore with only their snout poking out of the still water. They are a protected speices so the beach gets roped off to keep them safe.
While kayaking in Lake Champlain, just off of North Hero State Park. I was photographing the dragonflies as they landed on the waterlilies and who should show his pointy little head? A Serendipitious Spiny Soft Shell turtle.
