Default Toad & Frog

Have had some fine wet fun lately, trying to photograph some of our native frogs and toads.

Had to get wet up to my neck in the marsh to sneak up on this tiny Chorus Frog while he was singing. Was even able to enjoy my new K-5's video capability to film several Chorus Frog while singing (although have not yet figured out how to post a video here…)

Like their cousins the frogs, toads sing to attract a mate. Unlike the Chorus Frogs, these American Toads are not at all shy of the nosy photographers. Here's one series of a toad songster near our park's playground…

And another in the manure pond back of our horse stables.

Was a bit too slow to get a good shot of the shy Wood Frogs singing…

But sure found plenty of evidence that their songs were successful!
