Saint Meinrad Archabbey's Bede Hall is reflected in one of the small lakes at the edge of campus. I took this photograph during a walk on a spectacular fall afternoon yesterday. The circular ripples in the water are the traces of a turtle diving to escape sight. The turtle was actually what I was trying to photograph. If you walk along the shores of these small lakes at any given moment, you will literally see dozens of turtles floating and wafting happily on the surface of the water. But they are awfully shy creatures. Any hint of movement or sound from dozens of yards away sends them diving deep below the surface in a split second--faster than a click of the camera.
