Frog

Who's that sitting in the grass?  (See Alan's finger pointing).



I have made few postings on reptiles or amphibians on this blog, but here in the grass of the welcome area, on a bright November morning, hopped a bright-eyed common frog.


After posing for a photo he hopped off into the grass.  I wonder how many more there are hopping round the place.  They are supposed to be hibernating at the bottom of a pond by now, so he's a late sleeper.  

Frogs re-emerge in February to mate.  I was once working on a pond restoration job on February 14th, Valentine's Day, and the pond was full of frogs on the job.  A happy day.
