And... ummm.... please... before you slam me up against the wall for killing these bugs, I didn't kill them. I found them already dead.

Oh wait. I killed the wasp. And, I'd do it again. It was in my bathroom while I was showering. A deadly mistake for a wasp around here.

Frog was in the pool and was returned outside promptly after his photo session.

This shot is kinda a remake of Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_696311.jpg The Morning after The Big Party. I always liked that shot...

Sorry about the Dust Bunnies. I cleaned my sensor FOUR TIMES and still there was mess on it...

So be it. *sigh*

31_F.gif Debbi wanted to know: "Do you refrigerate him slightly to make him stay sill for the shot?"
No, I don't. Frogs are much better than toads about holding still. When they get under the bright lights, I think it's like when folks shine lights in their eyes for "frog gigging" (which I've never done). But, anyway, they pretty much stay where they're put.

Toads hop all over. *sigh*
