This morning I decided enough is enough! Kenny and I worked hard this spring dividing the pot bound water lilies. We were looking forward to seeing them revived and blooming. Someone else had other plans. Mr. Snap. >:(

A snapping turtle decided to take up residence and has spent all summer eating a water lily salad. It had gotten to the point that had he continued, the lilies wouldn't have survived. Water lilies are people too so Mitch to the rescue!

I had to drain most of the water in order to capture the little bugger. >:(

His new home will be on the other side of the Connecticut River. :)
Here he is in a 5 gallon bucket.

And since I am still not able to post more than one pic per post (ahem...tech guys!!) here is a pic of what's under the surface. There is another deeper tier that you can't see. (about 30" total depth so the fish are able to survive the winter)



PS- By this time of year the lilies should be covering about 1/2 of the pond's surface.

WillyWump:
Incredible stuff Mitch! very lovely.

and are you sure you didnt flush Snappy down the toilet?
