An old turtle trying to cross the road.
An old turtle tries to the cross the road from one marsh to another at Chincoteague Island. I was crossing the road to get out of the island after a long day of hiking and swimming in the Atlantic, and this turtle started to cross but stopped when it heard the cars coming close. After some time it started to turn around and go back into the marsh it came out of.
