Mason Neck State Park Box Turtle

Took a hike today at the Mason Neck State Park in Virginia. It's on the Potomac just south of the Washington area. Right when I got out to the Eagle Bluffs blind it started to rain, on and off, occasionally pretty hard. I sat in the blind for 2 or 3 hours waiting out the rain since I had all my camera gear with me. While I was sitting there I got to watch a mated pair of Osprey dive for fish. I also spotted two Bald Eagles. Unfortunately, the blind was too far away to get anything great. It wasn't a complete bust though - I found this Eastern Box Turtle in the middle of the trail on my hike back.
