Late March and through April.  If you don't live near a wetland with spring peepers, here is what people are talking about when they say the spring peepers are making a racket!

   FROGNUTS !    is a  new way to get to this site.
It's fun to say and easier to remember than "frog hyphen shots dot com and don't forget the hyphen".

Try it!  Click on the tree frog  and you'll see the new "lobby" for this site (and you'll see the rest of this picture).  Tree frogs are fun photographic subjects because they're so mellow, cooperative... and sticky-footed!

Click here to go to Google, then type your search words AFTER 
what's already there in the box.

You can also use Google for a quick scan of all images on this site (as of a few weeks ago...  the Google web-spiders have gazillions of sites to crawl over and keep up with!)   You'll get a chaotic dump of all images on the site, but you might find a surprise you didn't know was here.

 When you're done with Google, close its browser window

What’s going on here?

In 2003 I moved into a house with a pond in the back yard.  Little did I know that it was bursting with frogs!  I love critters of every kind, and I just happened to have a camera that could do great closeup shots AND see in the dark -- so that was the beginning of Frog Shots.  Six years and many gigabytes later,  my photo collection was spilling over from one hard drive to another, and it was high time to go public and share the bounty! was launched in May 2009.

Even now, five years later, this is still just a framework to get started -- you'll notice "under construction" signs on many pages. There's MUCH more coming .. stay tuned!

Happy hopping!

  One-hop "portal" to all frog sounds has grown like a Jumanji vine,
  to the point where it needs a special OTHER
  website to point you to the various places 
  where the frog sounds are!  (A major site-
                                               wide cleanup and reorganization is coming.)
