Default Snug as a Bug in a Rug!

My step son was helping me with some chores around the house yesterday afternoon. I had pulled out an old window from the storage shed so he could take the glass from it, to replace a broken pane in the house. He took it and layed it across a couple of sawhorses and started working on it when he noticed this frog stuck in the frame.
Of course I had to grab my camera and take a few shoots before letting it loose.




Then I helped him out of his jam, I'n not sure how he did it but, he ended up on top of the glass and took the leaves and dirt that was under his body with him. He just sat there for a couple minuets. Seemed like he was just contemplating his recent ordeal.


Then he turned... looked at the camera with curiosity.

The above shots were taken with the 55-300 so I went back to change lenses to the 28-80 with the Vivitar 2X TC.


I had to get much closer, and by this time he was ready to leave...


It's been fun but, I'm out of here.

The funny thing was a few minuets later I found a frog about twice the size of the first, in this old flower pot.


Oh, hi there. Can you direct me to the closes pond?


I'd be happy to return the favor one day.


Pretty please... how can you resist this face?


Thanks buddy...


See ya...

And they lived happy ever after.

great series here

the lighting and composition in #4 makes it a phenominal photo, aside from being a cool capture

That poor little frog (or is it a toad? I don't know the difference), being stuck in the frame. He looks so flat in the first picture on the glass. Glad he was OK, and that he gave you such fun taking pictures of him.

LOL, yeah, he's OK. Guess it was a good thing I decided to pull out that old window when I did.
BTW, I'm not sure I know the difference between a toad and a frog either.

So is this the start of a plague of frogs???

Great job capturing the personalities of your amphibian friends - and wonderfully sharp images too. (as well as a great story!)
