The Frog In The Birdhouse

Frog In A Birdhouse

Photo from the Sand Springs Leader

This is a neat little story about a frog in a birdhouse from the Sand Springs Leader Newspaper in Arkansas.   I thought it was a cool photo, plus I love frogs and have a pond in my backyard.  As you know, or will find out soon, ponds and flowing water is a huge attraction for birds.  The story starts like this:

 It was a frog, alright; a frog in the bluebird house. Had that frog been sitting in the door-opening wearing a tam, cheap sunglasses, holding a cold drink in one hand, and a lit cigarette at the end of a long, ebony cigarette holder in the other, I wouldn’t have been more surprised.

It nice to see how well it blends to the colour of the birdhouse. Over here some of the tree frogs prefer tree holes used by birds such as Woodpeckers.

I bet your pond also has some good dragonflies.

Hey Amila!

Frogs are amazing creatures. During the summer our backyard is alive with what sounds like thousands of frogs. And their ability to blend in with any background is phenominal.

And from the beginning of summer and into the fall, we have hundreds of all kinds of dragonflies and damselflies. Sometimes there appears to be a cloud over the house, a dragonfly cloud.

I am seriously considering purchasing a new digital Canon SLR body and begin some serious photography. There is so much to capture in this beautiful countryside.
