10.02.2020 Frog Friday

Well, I have no idea how this format got here, but hopefully this post will come out looking right. The editor is not at all how it looked yesterday.

Last Saturday I went to North Quabbin and photographed the foliage surrounding the small pond which is the source of the West Branch of Fever Brook that I shared in that day’s post. Afterwards I visited Moosehorn Pond as I often do and at first did not see any frogs, but then did find a couple small ones. I thought this female was an attractive model sitting on that lily pad.

As there was each of the three weekend days (mine include Monday), a fine mist was falling and that made for some drops to make the scene more interesting.

    I’ve been using the new editor for Lagniappe, but I was surprised to find it waiting for me at The Task at Hand this morning. There are perplexing differences between the two editors, so an email to the gurus was in order. In the meantime, I’ll live in work-around city.

    Do you think the weight of the froggie was the cause of the pool of water beneath her? My guess was the leaf was depressed, and that caused the water to collect. It’s a nice effect.

    • I’ve received notices that it was coming but there was always the option to keep the old editor. I guess I’ll get used to it. Facebook did the same thing with changing the format. I am used to it but there are some serious negatives that I hope will be corrected. I imagine the new WP editor will have growing pains as well.
      Yes, I do think the froggie’s weight had something to do with it but being a gentleman I know better than referring to it. πŸ™‚ Had she asked I would have replied, “No my dear, that lily pad does not make your butt look big”. Ann Mackay asked about the puddle being weight influenced on FB and I agree but also think, since it was raining, that some of that personal puddle may have been runoff from her body. As I mentioned in some previous frog post, I like the surface tension that makes the water seem a bit sticky or viscous around the frog’s limbs.

    She’s a sweet little thing. I don’t recognize her.

    Interestingly, they foisted the new editor on me a few weeks ago. I threatened to quit on the spot if I couldn’t figure it out but it wasn’t as bad as I’d feared.

  4. Nice Froggy Friday! The new editor seems a little funky, but getting used to it. Once in a while it still seems to do weird things. But maybe it is just me!

  7. Steve, i love this wonderful photo. It shows me how beautiful nature is and how well you managed to capture this special moment with the camera.
    Just yesterday I saw a tree frog in our garden under the gooseberry bush.

    She’s really sitting pretty. If the typical male is called a bullfrog, a random thought comes: Why aren’t the females called cowfrogs? Silly question, I know–that idea would never catch on.
