09.17.2021 Frog Friday-The tail end of polliwoginess

Here’s a little cutie sporting the last vestige of its polliwog tail. The tympanum is just forming and looks small enough to indicate a young lady but I guess that could change with maturity.

The supply of frogs to photograph is dwindling as the mornings are getting cooler so they are not coming up as early. I’ll try to go out a little later in the day when I can but we’ll probably have more fog than frog Fridays.

    The frogs encounters are very welcome, but I’d also welcome a new category of Fog Fridays, for sure.


  2. ‘Fog’ Fridays may be a thing with the seasonal changes, but I have enjoyed the Frog Fridays whilst they have lasted. Another lovely he or she, beautifully captured. Thank you, Steve!

    That cute little frog might want to glance over its shoulder. That might be a lily pad approaching from the rear, but it might be a disguised PacMan, ready to chomp.

  4. Very nice Steve! I enjoy seeing your frog images! Reminds me of my old home where we had a pond. We would sit and enjoy the frogs and other wildlife!

    Frog season seems to pass so quickly. Fog Friday will be welcome too, but I’ll sure miss your delightful frog photographs. Todays little sweetie made me smile.

    • Fortunately fog season is pretty much all year although winter isn’t quite as often. But a good frozen rime fog coating everything is a treat and I hope I get to share one here.The season is winding down and I actually struck out entirely my last two efforts. Not ready to give up quite yet. Glad she brought you a smile, Lori.

    I’m enjoying your Frog Fridays! I don’t see frogs in my pond, but do have some great toads and even tiny ones this time of year. This is a lovely photo of Ms/Ms/Them/They frog!

    • The gender is up in the air but I think she’s a she. 🙂 We have a few toads, mostly the American Toad, that come into the yard. They are much grumpier in appearance than these frogs. Glad you are enjoying these and I hope I can present another few before it’s foliage season and the take their mud slumber.
