Painted Turtle
Those claws look pretty serious. These are pet store turtles - Sliders - they shouldn't be living here.

Barred Owl Triptych
Owls aren't easy to find - we only found this because someone else said there was an owl near by and we went looking for it. This was a short walk before dinner and I didn't bring my photo bag - just a 105mm and the 50. This is what I could do with what I had. The person at reception says there are three owls currently living in the garden.
Species: Strix varia (Barred Owl)
