01.13.2023 Frog Friday for Frog Fans

I know a few of you enjoy the little green guys so here’s a green frog that is a green frog.

I’ve got nothing against snakes in the grass but prefer frogs in the grass. I saved this in a larger than usual size so give it a click to see all the frogflesh details.

  1. It looks like there’s green lichen on the frog. I also seem to see an in-your-eye selfie.

    • This was in the lotus pond that I used to visit which is now overgrown with cattails and loosestrife since the original owner has passed away. I think that is probably duckweed from the pond. I am in the eye but lost in the shadowy silhouette of a pine tree.

    I see a landscape in the reflection of the frog’s eye.

    Aw, prince o’ the pond. Or princess as the case may be.

    The things I learn from this blog. I had to look up how to tell male from female frogs just to comment. I guess male frogs have rougher skin and tympanums that are bigger than their eyes. Hmm hard to tell–and I really can’t tell about the vocal sac. This was a helpful site: https://acuariopets.com/how-to-tell-the-gender-of-a-frog-10-ways/

    Okay, is that a male frog or just a prince frog fantasy?

    Speaks sweetly of summer. At the rate we’re going, it’ll be here pretty soon. πŸ˜‰

    Wonderful. We have tree frogs. We had seriously endangered Western Toads living off our drip lines. The toads are no longer here. Sad.

    • Thanks, Cindy! Most of our frogs and toads are not endangered aside from all amphibians being endangered as the climate changes. When we have a prolonged drought many of the ponds get quite shallow making life difficult for the little hoppers.

    I see the duckweed, but it looks as though the skin itself has a nice, green iridescence. This one looks especially nice in the grass: a studio shot, so to speak.

    I’ll bet that the frog would also prefer that there were only frogs in the grass – even our harmless Grass snake will eat frogs!
