Hitchin' a Ride

Posted by
Lee (Fort Frances Ontario, Canada) on 25 June 2009 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Now why do you suppose these two frogs are in this position? I know it is definately not what you're thinking.
Every now and then you see them lined up two or three deep like this. It just looks hiarious to me. A whole pond and you gotta be on top of me. Just my luck. Oh well I'll paddle. You kick.

Thank you for visiting my site. I consider myself to be lucky living where I do. Everyday I wake up to a wealth of interesting visual scenarios. Most of my pictures are Wildlife and Nature taken from around the area. The area specifically being Fort Frances Ontario on beautiful Rainy Lake. Feel free to comment on what you see. I look forward to hearing from you. If you like what you see, please rate it. Better yet, bookmark the site and drop back often. I will be posting daily.

Anthony Morgan Lambert from Bielefeld(old Pembroke dock boy,Wales), Germany

I bet there was a right racket going on with all those frogs croaking !!

25 Jun 2009 9:45am

@Anthony Morgan Lambert: Actually, they were all silent. This was taken in the heat of the day.

Kathe from Marquette, Michigan, United States

Froggies! Hmm...northern leopard or green frogs, I think. Ours do that too. In fact, little one-eyed Ren will let monster-sized Michi find the crickets, and while he's stalking them, she'll climb up his back, use his snout as a springboard, and snatch his prey. I'm just surprised Michi lets Ren do that - and hasn't eaten her. ;^)

@Kathe: Thanks Kathe. Great story.
