hopping down my street this morning. THIS frog, in fact.
I was standing at my kitchen sink, washing salad lettuce and saw a little something out on the street....a little something that made a big hop, then stopped, hopped again.
Fortunately, I don't live on a terribly busy street and it is a holiday today - probably why the little fellow managed to get this far without being run over (I have no idea how far 'this far' would be), regardless, I was pretty sure this little guy would be better off in my yard than on the pavement.
So, grabbed my trusty camera and To The Rescue!
I put it down on the grass for a little photo shoot, then put it over on some wet wood chips; still sitting under the junipers. It's a Northern Leopard Frog (Rana pipiens), by the way. I don't know why it isn't all grass green.
I like frogs.
