Bales of all kinds

Funny how the world works. I had taken a picture while kayaking last week of some turtles on a log. I wondered what you call a group of turtles so I looked it up and a group of turtles is called a bale. I never got around to writing my blog about it then today Laura puts up her weekly Zentangle Challenge and it is to create a tile using the pattern "bales". How about that!

So here's my challenge entry, a bale of turtles in bales and on bales:

And here are my bale of turtles on a log:



I love having fun like this. Quirky things make me happy.
