Glasgow, Scotland, taken on December 17, 2015
During some wait time between experiments, I visited the school’s Zoology Museum and for the first time saw the frog display. There were two tiny frogs (each about the size of a Ferrero Rocher) hidden in the leaves but only one is shown here. Why, don’t you just look smug!
Do you see it? Yes, that’s a frog right there in the marsh, with its bulging eyes sticking out of the surface of the water! My dad and I were taking a slow hike through the trails in Wilket Creek Park, and we stopped by a marshy area in the woods. We observed the marsh for a good ten minutes for signs of life and alas, this is one of the three frogs that we managed to sight! It was so quiet, almost not moving, appearing as if it was watching a target in a distance…or just being lazy, actually. If only I could have gotten closer…! (Click for the full-size, clearer image. I’ve zoomed in as much as I could without making the image appear too blurry – at times like this I actually regret not bring my small camera which has a much more superior optical zoom than Mr.Nikon!)
