It was his shape that caught my eye as I rounded a corner to a small pond. He sat perfectly still, until he was GONE!
This Tree Frog found a shady spot to nap, with the sun shining down into the bloom providing a nice back light for my image.
Mint colored frogs that is.
When I spotted two Tree Frogs nestled down in a white Calla Lily bloom a certain advertising slogan started in my head.
We had some rain last night which left a few water drops on flowers along the river bank at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens.
Regrettably I did not see the Tree Frog at the time.
Although if I had I probably would have 100 images, not just four or five of a flower I have photographed before.
A Tree Frog, almost hiding in plain sight.
The big leaf was bouncing in the breeze with the frog just enjoying the ride.
I haven’t seen many frogs around the various ponds I visit. Usually I just hear the splash as they disappear. I heard this one and his pals in a croaking chorus long before I got to the pond. I finally spotted him near the edge of the water. At least two others were answering in the deeper reeds.
He was huge! Bigger than my hand.
This is a bit further out in the pond, which is the same pond that the Barred Owls hunt around. The frogs might live longer if they didn’t announce themselves with such enthusiasm.
