Sandra said...

he is one fine frog and the photos are fantastic. did you use a light or was this some natural lighting?

Andy said...

Nice find. The frogs have almost disappeared around here.

Revrunner said...

That's how I feel sometimes. :-)

Cute froggie, their noises can be very loud! Great shots! Thank you so much for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!

Phil Slade said...

He's just so beautiful. Far better looking than a prince.

Our Sand martin (Riparia riparia)occurs across most the whole of Europe and the Mediterranean countries, part of northern Asia and also North America. In the US it is known as Bank Swallow but is the same species.

HOOTIN ANNI said...

These are beyond EXCELLENT!! I'm sure it took a lot of patience and diligence to sit and 'wait' for it to croak. LOL [no pun intended]

And Yes!! That soap scum truly disappears, doesn't it?

Gotta love the before and after sequence.

Jackie Mc Guinness said...

Fabulous photos!

Kathy said...

Oh, I love him! I have always wanted to get a photo of a great big bull frog! I don't necessarily want to get too close because I'm a bit squeamish of any reptile or amphibian but on the other hand they're somewhat fascinating to me! On summer nights and with a big pond just down the hill the frogs sing all night long but by time the morning sun comes up, they're gone! Or at least gone to sleep!

Debbie said...

A.m.A.z.I.n.G!!! really amazing details in these up close shots!!! have a wonderful weekend!!!

Rajesh said...

Very cool shots.

Linley S said...

One small frog can make a lot of noise, great shots of the cute little guy. I had one in the garden for a while, I could hear it but never saw him.

TexWisGirl said...

adorable!!!

Gunilla Bäck said...

Wonderful photos of the cute frog!

VP said...

Absolutely ugly and in its own way fascinating! A great capture!

Pamela Gordon said...

Oh aren't these beautiful shots of the froggy! I love them.

Gayle said...

Love the shots.
Ours croaks when he thinks he's hidden and Yelps when he thinks he's been seen---so funny!

jo(e) said...

Oh, that's crazy, how much he puffs up to croak! These are such great close-up shots.

Birdman said...

It's not easy being green.

Karen S. said...

Good morning sweet face, it's cool to be you and green too!

Linda W. said...

Oh, these are marvelous photos! I like the last one with the frog all puffed up.

marshaleith said...

great captures!!!

Judy said...

What great shots! We used to have so many frogs every summer but for the last ten or so years there have been none and I wonder why.

Stephanie said...

These are wonderful, Tina!

Daniel LaFrance said...

Your captures are superb!

rainfield61 said...

Oops it is YOU.

Sylvia K said...

Jenny said...

"A Frog He Would A-Wooing Go". How can you not smile at such a funny frog? Great photos.

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Grrreat images. I can never get close enough to the frogs we have.

William Kendall said...

Well hello there, froggie!

visualnorway said...

He is almost blowing himself up! Probably just a bit of hot air ...
Well spotted and caught!

Tammie Lee said...

wow, wonderful
such an interesting looking critter!

RedPat said...

Wonderful shots of this cutie, EG! I've always loved frogs and toads! ;-)

Hannah said...

Wow, what an adorable bullfrog. I would love to play with him. I never see them up here.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Wow, he is getting all puffed up for some reason.

Andrea Priebe said...

Isn't he wonderful ... I used to go to a pond where they were and I captured some similar pictures. So much fun ... but watch your step, when the babies come out of the water they are everywhere and they are tini tiny. Beautiful shot ...

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

I think frogs look hilarious all bloated up like that..they sure do have loud croaks!

Chandra Eswaran said...

Holy Spokes - that boy looks like he is really embarrassed because he was caught "croaking" :)
Cute subject and beautiful photos, Tina!
Have a Beautiful Day!
Peace :)

Clairejustine oxox said...

Amazing pictures, well done on getting such stunning shots :)

Giga said...

It's a great frog and interesting to inflated. Greetings.

Rose said...

Wonderful captures! I have always wanted to capture this.

NatureFootstep said...

wow, that´s some pretty nice images. Loved to see them as I never seen this in person. :)

cieldequimper said...

Brilliant!!!

Blogoratti said...

Amazing shot of a lovely animal.

Judy said...

Awesome captures! I love that last shot of him.

Kay said...

These are terrific shots! We have tiny frogs, no more than an inch in length, that make a LOT of noise. They're usually too small and well hidden to approach with a camera. I envy that you found and shot this cute little guy.

Felicia said...

he's a big boy and i bet he has a big croak too.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Those are wonderful. You caught him croaking! I bet you can hear that guy for miles. Beautiful photos ... And it makes me happy to see frogs doing well!

Halcyon said...

Those guys are small, but can make some BIG noise!

Amy at love made my home said...

Fantastic photos!! xx

Jack said...

This is a lovely progression, EG.

edenhills said...

Great images! I can never seem to find a friendly frog to pose for me.
