Frog hunt!

Granddad - can I play with the frogs? Oh, I suppose so..




Target aquired.....




The grab....




Now I can cuddle it!




Oh my gawd - she's kissed it




I'm no prince - I'm off!

Re: Frog hunt!

A charming set of photos Stuart, though personally I could never understand the attraction of frogs

Re: Frog hunt!

What a fantastic set of images. You must have been pleased. Was she expecting the frog to turn into a prince?

Is that a snake to the left of her on image four?

That's what her dad told her

Hope not - I spend hours by the pond with the camera in the forlorn hope that the grass snake I saw a couple of years back reappears. There is a large 18" ant on the gravel though (metal garden sculpture ).

I also saw a newt in the pond (but didn't tell Maisie!) which was nice and reassures me that the pond is healthy. Difficult to photograph though.
