The girl is D-E-T-E-R-M-I-N-E-D to catch herself a turtle.

She purchased her brother's bamboo pole and attached her small handled net to it with black plumber's tape.

Usually as soon as the turtles hear/see us they plop into the water and don't return until we are safely gone. BUT there was one big fella that was taunting her. He came back out of the water promptly and stayed out on the log just out of her reach. He seemed to know it. He didn't flinch as her net came close - he just sat there staring with a smug look on his face (if turtle's could have such a look).

Eventually it was time to leave...empty handed once again.

If she wants to catch frogs instead of turtles, come to our cabin the summer - she can catch lots each and every day :)
