This photo of a turtle chasing a fish in our pond reminds me of the Aboriginal Canadian artist Norval Morrissau. I love the vibrant colors he uses to illustrate the ancient legends of the Ojibwa people.

This poster “Turtle, fish, frog, birds represents a scene from one of the Anishinaabe creation stories where the turtles bring up enough mud on their backs from the ocean floor to create the Turtle Island.

So what story does my photo tell? “Tag, you’re it!” perhaps…
