The frogs are out already, and after seeing types I hadn’t really noticed before yesterday, I decided to take the camera up to the pond to get some shots of them singing.
The one I was hoping to get a picture of, a copper colored spheroid with legs that look like leaves, and a transparent sac slung under his jaw for chirp enhancement, was a no show, or more accurately, was farther out in the reeds than I was willing to wade.
I did get a shot of this young couple bumping uglies, despite their studied efforts at concealment. It was the gurgling and snorting that gave them away.
