09.24.2021 Frog Friday

In grass and other plants up to my knees I was lucky to see him much less get a clear shot. But frogs are getting scarcer in the morning as the season winds down and the overnights are cooler so I didn’t pass up the opportunity.

Green Frog-Lithobates clamitans in situ  🙂 I did all I could to reduce the effect of the dead grass and other overly bright areas.

This might be it for current frogs but you never know, I might find one or two while traveling.

  1. This fellow has a great metallic sheen, I bet he buffs himself up with Simichrome or Kiwi every morning.

    I love the way that you capture the bumpy texture of the frog and its metallic glow of its skin.

    What a lovely green sheen on this frog! I found a frog in the chicken pen yesterday, hiding in the holes of a cinder block near the water hydrant. And Tuesday I was mowing in the deer pen where we still keep a full stock tank of water for the deer, and found three gorgeous frogs. One was a coppery brown which I’d never seen around here. What a delight! I thought of you immediately… I felt like the luckiest girl alive. Too bad I was on the mower and had no camera or cell with me. 😦

    What an unusual color; I really like the metallic sheen, and the hints of purple. Do frogs change color in autumn, like the leaves?
