07.23.2021 Frog Friday XXXIV

Going through the search archives we are somewhere around the thirty fifth Frog Friday.  I might have missed one or two. But now a number is established.

This is one of the few bullfrogs I have photographed that is not “smiling”. It’s a young one, not a mark to be seen, and clear skin all over. And grumpy. The pad looks comfortable enough.

    I love this frog photo, Steve. He looks more bored than grumpy, the same kind of look that teenagers seems to wear quite often.

    • Thanks, Mike! I guess this sort of expression is open to lots of interpretation. Bored is better than grumpy. At least he can cheer up if something interesting happens.

        🙂 Expressions can be tough to interpret, even for humans. It is amazing how hard it has been over the past year when almost everyone has been wearing a mask. I am used to smiling at people when I pass them, but I doubt that is discernible when I am wearing a mask.

      • I’ve pretty much been able to tell a smile behind a mask by the person’s eyes. It isn’t 100% reliable but many folks smile as much with their eyes as their mouth. I am willing to bet you do, Mike. 🙂

  2. I think he looks rather contemplative, not grumpy. Are you sure you aren’t projecting? 😉 Beautiful photo!

    That’s not grumpiness — that’s a look of supplication: “I don’t know who you are, or what you want, but please don’t hurt me.”

    I think this frog looks impatient. Or maybe exasperated!
