I was out late walking the dog in the dark... heard a splash into the pool... KNEW it was a frog (toads don't jump into water at danger). Got all excited! (Yes, I do realize I'm odd. But, I like me.)

So, I turned on all of the lights... and the pool lights... to find him. Fished him out with a net and here he is ... fixing my cellphone for me.

Nice guy.

I put him in the pond afterward, instead of the pool, since I thought he'd be happier there.

He's a good catch, as Electric repairmen are in the pound seats nowadays. Hehe.

That trained frog is back. (I'm perpetually amazed at this multiyear theme.) He actually looks like he knows what he's doing. Who am I kidding..? What do I know about the gender of a frog?

Great fun, excellent lighting and detail, and I especially like the way he has those toes hooked over the pieces in front of him. One of my five top picks. Voted earlier.

I've looked at this four or five times now... And I keep just asking .. Why?

I can't help but notice that the frog looks like he needs to "Eat Mor Bugz" :)

I like the shot, makes me smile, and well executed. A definite ribbon in my book.
