There's always something to shoot while you're waiting for a train. Nice catch.

As almost all of us are aware, there is a lot of time spent just waiting and waiting and waiting in this hobby. Other things often draw our interest while all this waiting is going on, and we've finished the paper, the jumble, the crossword, sudoku, etc. Animals are frequently part of the action while waiting for some action, so it's only natural to shoot a picture. For what it's worth, I have a shot of some turkeys on the LIRR I got while waiting for Riverhead freight RF 63 about 30 years ago-I think it's in one of my LIRR albums. You're not the only one who has a critter photo on RRPA!!

The turtle was in a small stream adjacent to the Middlesex Greenway, former LVRR Perth Amboy to South Plainfield Branch I was walkin the former right of way and found the turtle .so I took a picture. The Middlesex Greenway is used for walking , bicycling,In some locations there are remnants of the LV's presence. Track in some places which isn't part of the greenway.
