Frogs, frogs, frogs.(20140427) Isn't a little bit of sun a good thing!
After a very successful morning walk, and with the sun providing some heat, I headed out to see if the frogs were singing. A couple of days ago I posted my first Columbia spotted frogs on the blog with a promise to return when the light was better. The light was better today, but I was worried after the very cool day yesterday that the frogs wouldn't be active until much later in the day, and I wasn't going to hang around too long because I was hungry:) After about a forty minute wait my first visitor arrived.
My next visitor was demonstrating what "springtime" is all about. Singing to attract a mate. Notice no yellow stripe, this is a Columbia spotted.A great "singing job" will allow you to approach a lady friend like this successful suitor. I caught these two under water at first, they were headed straight for my feet. Notice that this guy of this pair is a Wood frog.
