It's turtle season again

Last night I stopped to help a little (fist-sized) turtle cross the road. This morning while coming down the hill, I threw out the anchor to keep from hitting a soccer-ball-sized turtle who was only about 2 lengths from finishing his trek across the street. This was probably not the most self-protective move I could have made. I stopped on the inside of a blind curve - totally pissing off the HUGE truck that came booming up behind me. The truck swerved and went on its way, and by the time I thought about taking a photo of the turtle, it was already off the road and into the bushes. Yay for big turtles! Then I swerved again to miss a little turtle who was almost off of the road too.
