Frogs

Post by leonardturner »

I came upon a small tree frog sitting in the dark on a patio plant quite by accident, and grabbed a few cell phone shots. Shortly thereafter, I noted, perhaps not coincidentally, a collection of eggs floating on the water in a nearby fountain, as well as in two standing-water containers for bog plants. Things progressed quite rapidly thereafter, although I never got to see the tadpoles lose their tails and get legs.

I wasn't quite sure where to post these--they include one "in the wild", one under the microscope, and the rest "studio" macro.

Thanks for your indulgence,

Leonard
