Froggy Thoughts


A pensive green treefrog sitting atop one of my B27s.
Wonder what he's pondering...

Lynne,
That could very well be true :)

That is one green-looking frog! Gorgeous.

...It's probably thinking..'when will this human with the camera leave me alone.'

Haven't seen any greens yet this year, but the grey treefrogs are singing outside tonight, as are the southern toads....

PSYL,
You're probably right, although he was quite patient as I took around 45 different shots of him.

David,
We've seen a few green treefrogs and cricket frogs, heard some Cope's gray treefrogs, carpenter frogs, pickerel frogs, green frogs, Southern leopard frogs, spring peepers, Brimley's chorus frogs, a few American toads, and some Little Grass frogs. I can't wait until the rest of them get cranked up!

B27s?

Jenn,
B27s are paper targets.

Jenn said...

Ah!

I didn't think you were into restoring old race cars!

On wheelbarrows:

There's a trick the bike store guy told me about setting the tread, if you've got a tubed tire in the bike wheel format. Put a strap around the circumference and pressure it down until the rim of the tread is staying inside the rim of the wheel - then apply the air to the tube. Once the tread 'sets' and is staying in the rim, you can remove the compression band and put the tire to the correct pressure.

Maybe that will help you?

I never hear (or see) any frogs where I live in the DC suburbs. Bums me out. Thanks for the fix!

Jenn,
Thanks for the tire tip -- we'll give it a try.

Bloggy,
:D I already have a scat 'dana! But it is sweet that you thought of me when you saw one...

htgt,
I would be bummed if I didn't get to hear or see frogs. I'll be sure to post more for you soon.

We use to have these all over and sometimes singing so loud you could hardly hear yourself think..we've seen very few the last couple of years. I really miss them.
