Default Froggy Weather

We are enjoying plenty of cool, rain and damp these early Autumn days here in Northeast Tennessee. Makes for some very interesting landscapes...

Not much evidence of autumnal tints yet - our fields and woodlands are still mostly green.

Late season blooms are thriving in the moist climate.

And, of course, the wet meadows are rich in mushrooms...

Just in case you thought I mis-spelled the title of this thread, it is indeed FROGGY weather - fog and damp are perfect for thin-skinned amphibians. Here are several views of a tiny Gray Tree Frog, enjoying the moisture and the wet moss.

And a peek at one of his amphibian cousins - a small salamander (not sure of the species yet) enjoying a fine meal of fresh earthworm!

Well, it's time for me to put the raincoat back on and head on out into the fine East Tennessee foggy landscape! Hope you enjoyed these "froggy" views, and will share your comments & critique!

phenominal mole. those frog pics just blew me away.

and catching that salamander? I am impressed

How do you always get close enough? When im out and about, seems the animals catch me and run far before I am able to get close enough for pics.

Please tell me your secrets.

I like both the froggy's and the fogies and the Thistle blooms and Mushrooms. Nice work Mole.

Love the whole series, no favorite really. Well, the second frog picture perhaps, love the angle of his (her?) head. But really all of them are outstanding.
