You are probably thinking what does a picture of a Florida Cooter AKA Coastal Plain Cooter have to do with the theme loneliness? Let me explain…. we were driving home from lunch on Saturday when I saw somewhere between 9 – 13 Cooters all lined up enjoying an afternoon in the sun. I’d never seen that many at once and thought “what a photo op for the rule of odds.” I grabbed my camera, decided to walk all the way back to the pond I passed outside my neighborhood (which was at least a mile or two) and was so happy to see them still lined up! As soon as I got as far as the median in the road, one by one, they disappeared before my eyes plunking into the water. Well, the walk sure didn’t hurt me and I was able to photograph a gator but nothing really outstanding came of it. I was pleasantly surprised to see that after I turned my attention away from the gator and started to walk home, one lonely Cooter was back out :).
