Turtle and a spider

We had half an inch of rain earlier this week, a real blessing. The plants perked up considerably. Here's hoping we get more!

This morning, when I was outside, filling bird baths, I spotted a turtle about to cross the street toward our yard. I walked over, picked it up, and set it in our bed or salvia coccinea. I snapped some photos, then went inside the house for awhile. When I returned, I couldn't find that turtle ANYWHERE. So I'm not real sure what species it was. I did see some red so maybe it was a red-eared slider.

Then I couldn't resist shooting a jumping spider that I spotted on a metal chair in our back yard. Pretty, isn't she?
