The box turtle was found floating next to a fire extinguisher in an old swimming pool. The only thing keeping the pool from being a pitfall trap of death is that it has concrete steps going out of it. The turtle was a long way from the steps though. Amazingly, the frogs and tadpoles seem to be doing well amongst some hazardous looking bottles and trash. I plan to remove some of the objects that seem to still contain toxic liquids and rearrange some other debris to make sure the steps cannot become inaccessible when the water level lowers in July.

I've got the Orange Blossom special playing in the background for the fourth of July fireworks.
Would anyone like a chocolate covered banana dipped in coconut?

Many wonderful entries. This will prove to be a difficult month to judge for Dave Stiles.

The winner for June will be announced by Monday night ... I just bought a kayak and have the next few days off - I'll be out chasing river otters on Oxbow Bend in the north part of Grand Teton and then headed to Yellowstone for the holiday weekend.
