When froggie goes a-courting...


When froggie goes a-courting...
He’s a bit indiscriminate, and will latch on to anything... including a toad.

Steady on, a bit racy for those of us with a sensitive disposition!

It reminds me of school sports day with the piggy back race! Glad there's no ponds near me - not keen on frogs! I must say it is a good picture with all those lovely delicate colours....

With schools closed even the school pets including tadpoles are being found new homes.

Reminds me of spring and that I need to buy a new filter and pump for my mucky green water pond.
But having said that it is nice to see a couple of frogs getting after it on PAD but do you thing the photo would have got passed WiganWorld censorship board, if it had been a couple of dogs

I so remember when I was at school in Bickershaw, our class going on a walk to the local ponds (near to the pit I think) we went armed with jam jars to collect the frogspawn and watched as they developed into tadpoles. When they had sprouted their legs they were then let free. Happy days.

Excellent photo, David. Lovely colours. Well caught, sir.

Please ignore irrelevant comments. This is true nature.

Spring is so beautiful.

Interesting read.
Exodus 8:1-4 'And the Lord spoke to Moses'

Also,
To the Egyptians, frogs represented fertility and life because the Nile at a particular time would be flooded with them.
