We have had a record number of heat waves this year…at least for the Northeast. I think we may be done with them but one never can be sure. Eventually cold weather will return and the bullfrogs will slip into their mud beds for a winter’s slumber. So I am making the most of the opportunities while I can. These were all from this past Monday morning at Moosehorn Pond. I’d like to think each of the portraits I’ve collected this year offers something a little different from each other.
Bullfrog on a hot tin culvert (it really isn’t tin)
This was not an easy capture. I was on the road which is, of course, higher than the pond and the frog was close to the grass edge so I had to lean over the edge and angle the tripod down into the water to get this look at him.
I won’t disturb a subject, especially a frog, if I can avoid it. This guy wasn’t in a hurry to go anywhere so I gave up on the idea of grabbing an abstract of the lily pad and it does kind of steal the interest from Fergus. I’ll go back one day this weekend and see if I can follow up on that thought.
As you can see, Frog Monday provided a lot of images for Frog Friday.
