    Thank you for this haiku–I've seen this too, thought " how like us" or maybe they are thinking "how like us?"

    Enjoyed this, thanks Bob.
    A log is a great place for people watching. I've not seen this, but wonder do turtles watch out of mere interest or precaution/self preservation?
    I think people people watch because we're all so different. Maybe turtles are of the same opinion. But then turtles may also turtle watch. Fascinating pastime.
