At this time of year, there are mostly just my two summer frogs – bullfrogs and green frogs. The other three species are springtime frogs
who come to the pond to breed, then go back to the woods. Sometimes I
may see their eggs, tadpoles, or young froglets leaving the pond.

Bullfrog pouncing on a stick I tapped on the
ground in front of her. Eye shades going up,
front foot stuffing it in.

My first thought was that the small one,
left front, better watch out for the big
one behind! (See the Food Chain page.)

PUCKER UP !
This fellow was happy to hang around for a photo-shoot.
Maybe because I smell like pond mud ? Am I starting to look like a frog?

Between the tadpoles picking off mosquito larvae hanging from the pond surface, and frog faces serving as flypaper, there isn't much mosquito-on-human action around here. (See the July 30 Frog-of-the-Day for the flypaper effect.)
More mosquitoes-on-frogs are on the Food Chain page.

Evidence of the classic bullfrog pounce-and-crash meal plan.
I've seen it happen many times, and it's NO surprise that it leaves marks!

Here's what I see through the viewfinder at night, thanks to the night-focus feature on my trusty old frog camera. (Both trusty, and OLD!)

ON THE ROCKS
No beach at this pond, just rocks along the shore... sun-warmed and prime basking!
