What Is It XXII - Answers

What Is It Answers: Every year the squirrels raid the Ohio Buckeye Tree and bury some Buckeye nuts for the spring. This is the baby tree directly in front of a Blue Hibiscus in my front flower bed.
The fossilized stone found at the Cuyahoga River. There are several heart shapes on the sandstone. Becky definitely got this one first guess. She does some neat stories on her site. Lisa got the fossil idea which was neat. She has a neat post on photos from Indiana.
I went there with with my youngest grandson and he took the photo with the rock below my right hand. This area was underwater until they eliminated the Kent Dam. It is now a rapids area.
I think this is a Red Eared Slider Turtle I saw on a log. I shot him from behind just for What Is It.
Darla was the first one on this one. She always has beautiful flowers showing.
Joan had a turtle this week on her game so I thought she would slay this one. Check out her beautiful tortoise.
The final is the Canada Goose captured on a lawn in Stow. My daughter called and said there was a turkey in the area but it was gone by the time I got there. Darla got it on her second guess.
They are easy when you see the complete photo.

YIPPEE! A couple of those were hard Tom. You look really good, you must be feeling better. Thanks for the link...

Hey Tom

The turtle is a red-eared slider, it is an non-native species, that unfortunately, is becoming increasingly common in Ohio.

Cheers,

Tom

Crumb, I was so busy that I missed my weekly session with the "ink blots." I hate to brag but I would have actually gotten that last one! But I am sure my impression of the turtle leg would have stirred some wonderful insight! Have a great rest of the week!

Rose said...

I didn't see these in time to guess...I at least would have gotten the last two for sure and I think maybe the first.

Hi Tom, I missed this 'contest' this week... I may have gotten the turtle--but am not sure of anything else...

Hope you had a great week/weekend.

We are glad to be home.. It was a wonderful trip --just getting to see my son and family. BUT--the weather was horrible. Oh Well!!!!

I'm going to check through some of your older blog posts.
Hugs,
Betsy

Wow. You are right. They are so easy when you see the whole picture! I would have never guessed the Canadian goose. So cool!

Lanny said...

Hey I have a picture for you to figure out. It'll be up on the top post for a few days, I gotta get some weeding done. When you get a chance see if you can figure out what it is.
