The frog does not drink up the pond in which he lives.



Camera Critters
It's Camera Critters Sunday!!! Misty Dawn came up with this wonderful idea to post critters, and since animals and cameras are two of my favorite things, I had no trouble jumping on the bandwagon. Without further ado...here are some critter photos my mother took yesterday:

First, it's camo-frog! Do you see him?

Then, next comes camo-frog 2

Camo-frog-wanna-be

This frog's just chillin'

Last, but not least, confrontational frog

Ahahahaha - this is such a fun post! I stared at the first two photos to make sure I could see Camo Frogs #1 and #2... I'd think I saw them, but I just wanted to be sure hehe. My favorite is Confrontational Frog though ;-) Not afraid to stand his ground.... errrr, I mean water. hehe Great post!

Great series of froggies. camo 1 was pretty hard to see. My critter is here if you want to check him out.

Indy said...

I love your photos. I have two boys too (and husband is a lawyer too)and we spent Friday looking for frogs. We also found a little snake so they were in heaven. I am going to show my boys your photos. Thanks!

Rhea said...

Misty Dawn - I love confrontational frog also. and the wanna be camo frog. haha

Juli - thanks, thanks for coming by! I'll come check out your critter in just a bit.

Indy - So nice to meet you! My boys love frogs, and they would probably just LOVE to find a snake. So far we haven't come across one of those, thank goodness.

My kids saw two frogs in our pond today and were so excited about it.

Great layout and cool frogs. I'm getting ready to go on vacation so I've been sitting here 'pre'posting the next few weeks and I did frogs for 2 weeks for now from my sister's pond last November in CA.

Rhea said...

Tammy - Kids love frogs. There is no doubt about that! Trying to catch them is a great way to occupy time. lol

Tamy 3 sides of crazy - How on earth do you pre-post? You're amazing! Have a great trip!!

That is cute

Valarie said...

I love little froggies :) I really liked confrontational frog. :}

Lorna said...

Frogs are my favourite creature after cats. We finally found where the very loud sounds were coming from in the Botanic Gardens near us: some gorgeous little red frogs enjoying the tropical climate.
I love your photos. They are so perfect.

Hi Rhea,
This is a fun post - that last one is great.
I have scrolled down your blog and love the big barn, the green fence, .....a nice blog.
I have a friend in Clute, Texas.

Thanks for stopping by and seeing me.

Cool frogs. Even with the creek in the back...we don't see too many frogs. Toads are more likely. And then in the summer with the rains you can *hear* them...but I cannot figure out where they are. Maybe in our gutters? We love it when we go to the beach and the tree frogs "adhere" themselves to the glass doors. Very cool!

I love this montage of fabulous and fun images

Rhea said...

lilli & Nevada - Thanks! Nice to meeet you!

Valarie - I'm partial to frogs too. They're pretty cute.

Lorna - I'd love to see the red frogs, too cool! Thanks!

Carletta - I don't know where Clute is, but I'm going to look it up! There are so many small towns around the big metro cities.

Kat - The invisible toads, huh? Maybe you're only hearing them in your head. hehe Just kidding!

Babooshka - Thanks!

Cool work on the picture series!

Vader's Mom said...

Great photos!! I really loved the search for the frogs in photos 1 & 2.

Rhea said...

VBF - Oh, goody, I'm glad you love em...I'm so worried about you and your ruptured cyst. I hope you're ok!

David - Thanks! My mom actually took these photos. She and I are total photography nuts. She had the best montage of frogs though, so I asked to upload her photos this time. Normally I just share mine.

Vader's Mom - Thanks for coming by! My camo frogs mimic your hiding Vader photo, huh? lol

Katney said...

good collection on the frog.

Gattina said...

What a camouflage in the first pictures, lol ! I first couldn't see the frogs !

Stine said...

Great shots of an amazing critter!

Catherine said...

Good series of pictures! Better see this little critters in pictures than for real! They really scare me! Just as many bugs.
I showed the pictures to my children, they just look like those pictures in animal books.

Rhea said...

Katney - Thanks! I took similar pictures myself, but my mom got the most variety, so I used her photos. She came up with the idea for the captions too.

Gattina - I know, pretty cool camo, huh?

Stine - Thanks! I love frogs.

Catherine - I'm surprised your scared of frogs. They seem pretty harmless to me, but then again, we all have our different hears. Spiders and snakes freak me out but not my sister!!

Me & my puppies said...

Nice find, when my boys were younger we often went tagpole "hunting" in the spring. It was great fun.

Gretchen said...

More great shots! Those frogs are hard to find in ponds. Good Job!!
