06.03.2022 Frog Friday-Croaking for Love

Some animals mate for life, birds especially, but frogs do not.Β  Basically their version of a one night stand. Once mating is completed they go their own way and once the female lays her eggs she also hits the road leaving the future tads to fend for themselves.

“Don’t judge me, it’s just frog nature”.

This guy is looking to do his duty and help send forth a new generation of bullfrogs. Even if you don’t remember the tympanum clue to a bullfrog’s gender, only the males croak like this so that’s a telltale giveaway.

After staring at this handsome lothario for a little while, do you notice the other face grinning at you?

    Ummm, no. I can barely see your shoulder reflected in his left eye, but no grins anywhere…

    So, THAT’S why they’re always trying to kiss so many girls!
    We always thought they were princes hoping for a transformation when all along they were just after a cheap thrill.

    That’s what we get for “leaping” to conclusions.

    Very nice photograph.

    No ‘second image’ for me, perhaps because I only have eyes for Mr. B.

  9. That is one froggy grin! I believe I see a second smaller frog grinning in the water to the right of the big frog. πŸ™‚

  10. If you hadn’t asked us to look for a second face, I don’t think I’d have noticed it. At first I looked for an eye selfie and then found the face you intended.

    Too funny! I couldn’t see the other face until I read your response to a comment to start with the nostrils, then I suddenly saw what appeared to me to be the face of a squirrel. Fascinating.

    Well, I judge him to be a very fine frog…and wish him lots of luck with the lady frogs! I see the suggestion of a cat’s face but didn’t until you told us where to look. πŸ™‚
