This is my 3rd blandings turtle (Emydoidea blandingii) of the year. I saw this one a few hours after the first one. It was in a field a little ways away from water. It was right at the edge of where the mowed grass meets the tall grass. Just a few more inches away and i never would have seen it. Blandings turtles are threatened in WI and this was the first time i had found 2 in one day.
