Three turtles and an Emperor

False Map Turtle, Graptemys pseudogeographica p. meets duckling
On Thursday I visited the Brookfield Park lake at midday and watched a Reed Warbler hopping around the reeds and an Emperor Dragonfly laying eggs in the same area. Three turtles appeared when visitors threw bread for the ducks. The three turtles were different species. A coot gave one of them a good peck which sent it down.
A friend of Sue's gave her an amazing cactus flower which is a Stapelia. Two moths appeared in the hallway.
