Frisky Frogs


Frisky Frogs
A picture from my garden pond in Shevington heralding new life I hope as frisky frogs produce early Spring spawn spied on by a gawping goldfish. The spying goldfish is called James Pond who starred in "FROM RUSHES WITH LOVE" and "GOLDFISHER"

That's a beautiful photo, with all those gorgeous colours.... Witty caption as well.

Pond indeed, Frank - pity Honey Ryder wasn't allowed time to step ashore first, though.

What else is in that pond Frank ?
Did he star in Octopussy as well.

Let's keep this sense of humour and less of the carp to each other! P-A-D and album/Message board.

The Golden eyed fish will be looking forwards to eating most of them protein packed tadpoles when they start wagging there tales.

The frogs still look miserable even when they are 'being shaken not stirred'..! ;o))

To be frank Rev Franks photo is no better than your frogs photo that was on PAD on 21 March.

It's not a competition Mick. I didn't know Rev David Long was going to leapfrog me with his excellent picture.I'm not fishing for compliments and hope I don't croak before putting more pictures on this brilliant site on which a lot of people are hooked.

Ive always said its not a competition Frank, I was only offering Rev David some encouragement.
