What’s the big deal? I’m just out on my veranda.

 

I went outside and looked for Eyeballs and Cave Frog among the plant pots and the lily pads, but spotted no one. I decided to take the walk around the pond to sneak up on the back of where Uptown Frog hangs out – just as I was getting near, I realized he was WAY out in the open on a rock a bit upstream from his little condo area. I slowly walked all the way back around the pond and got the camera. I don’t think I took a breath the whole time I was edging the tripod into slightly new positions to try and get a good view of him without the plant stalks blocking everything. Happily, he stayed there the whole time! This may be the best view we ever get of him – and it’s a good one!

Eeeek! Peeping Tom!

 

I had almost decided that Uptown had moved out – but I crept up from behind the boulder where he hides and spotted his snout! So I quietly got the camera, never thinking he would actually stay still while I got in position. The angle was awkward and this was the only one from which I could see him – all others were blocked by the plant. Guess this guy’s the introvert of the frogs.
