Amphibious Reinstatement

Frogs & the Blue Forest 144

Usually when I approach this small shallow pingo ruin on the edge of the forest I hear a succession of small splashes as the frogs retreat to the safety of the water. This day was no different even though I did try to creep up on them….so I just sat down by the waters edge and waited…

Surely enough, one by one, the frogs gradually began to return until the point that I was surrounded by these amphibians…in the first picture above, this curious frog hopped right up to the lens… 😎

      • I just wish I could find a way to convince my two terriers that there is value for me in their keeping still and quiet, so I can photograph the creatures they would so dearly like to hunt!

      • I think that will probably be very difficult…I used to have a fox terrier who had to swim if she saw water…and no self-respecting canine can remain still if a rabbit runs by… πŸ˜‰

  5. Absolutely fabulous portraits!! I must say, I cannot think of anything more divine than being absolutely surrounded by amphibians!! What a glorious situation to find oneself in!! Superb images indeed! That first portrait of the curious green companion is classic! Myriads of cheers,
