Header Competition Season 3 # 18 - "Let's Get Out of Here "

The theme this week by Gail's Man  is "Let's Get Out of Here". Mac, Gail's ManDave,Kathy and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT and voting begins after that. 

 Let's get out of this northern snow and head to Florida. While I visited this southern climate I saw my first Florida Gopher Tortoise crossing the road. We stopped and I followed it into the landscape. Unlike the chicken the tortoise has a reason for crossing the road and I'll show you why.
Get off the road tortoise.
What are you doing here?
Oh, I see.
Now I know why you are called a gopher tortoise. 
Underground you go just like a gopher but a lot slower.


I chose this for the header from above in a wider format.
See what the others show at the above links.

How cool is that!
I would have pulled over to snap some pics of him, too.

That is so amazing! That is what our snapping turtles do, too!
I've never caught one laying eggs, but snapped one in the sun! They are not dissimilar!
