Frogs


It’s not often easy to get photos of frogs.  They tend to dive into the water and disappear when I approach, but Abbie and I came across this handsome fellow sitting smack in the middle of the trail in the Park the other day.  He didn’t move when Abbie ran by, or when I almost stepped on him and was kind enough to sit quietly while I snapped a few photos.

Yesterday we went to the Nature Conservancy and spotted some in one of the ponds.  The water is so scummy after the long dry spell that they were hard to spot, but they too were kind enough to pose for me while I snapped away.

It is going to be hot and sticky for the next few days, and still no sign of rain for us.  Still, after seeing what the poor people of Colorado and Florida are going through we will not complain.  It could always be worse.
