Yeah... I know. Frogs don't have souls.

So... sue me. *grin*

This guy hopped off the table while I was rearranging the light. I saw him hop off, but knew he couldn't really go anywhere, the dogs were outside... so I let him hop until I fixed things up.

Well, he hopped into the little pantry-like room next door. Still I didn't worry, just went to get him in the corner next to some cabinetry.

I reached for him.

He jumped up and over the baseboard and into the unreachable space under the cabinet.

The INSTALLED cabinet. That can't be moved.


I didn't actually NEED him for this challenge, had just found him, so was going to use him.

But, I couldn't leave him there to die.


*sigh again*

I got tools, took off the toe-kick moulding, then the fascia board... took the nails out of the toe-kick moulding and used it to force him out of the narrow space between the cabinet and the wall.

That frog.


Anyway, he sat very still for me... until he decided he'd had enough, and suddenly hopped off again.

I figured I'd gotten a decent shot and let him go outside again.

Merry Christmas, Little Frog.

Be thankful that your photographer is kind and didn't leave you to die behind the wall.


I wouldn't do that, but HE didn't know that.

*sigh again*

A lower perspective would have really made this shot. Not a fan of looking down on wildlife shots.

One of my favorites to ribbon. Nice detail in the eye and a good title to play up the image.

I'm not sure the reflection of the window added much for me. (I didn't even notice until I came back to comment.) But I just love the close up of this creature. Love the slime!

I'm not sure if I like or hate the window reflection.
