AUGUST FROGS
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.

CLASSIC POUNCE

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

BULLFROG SQUADRON

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?

NOSE JOB

Ouch!
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.

SCARFACE

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!

NIGHT MOVES
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!)
For camera details, visit  the Backstage page.

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