Jeremiah

Greetings to you on this fine Monday! Whew doggies, I am beat from the events of this past weekend. I'll update you all once I catch my breath. I went from being depressed with nothing to do, to running from one thing to the other. Good company + good family time + good food=GREAT!

This frog was my big find last Sunday on our impromptu trip to Lake Martin. All year long I have wished for a frog to shoot and finally, after 7 months of waiting, I got one. If a stranger walking by hadn't pointed him out, I never would have noticed him. I'm fairly certain that this is a bullfrog. If I'm wrong, please don't hesitate to let me know.




Thanks to all of you who said prayers and/or expressed concern for my daughter and her fiancee's safe travels to England. They made it just fine, though a little travel-weary. But they are having a super time! Facebook pics below of the "hen party." My daughter is in the red dress and the bride is in the black dress with cap sleeves. Best friends since middle school.

It is a sigh of relief for you to know they're enjoying their time in Merry o' England, safe and sound I'm sure.

Beautiful images.

I think that is a Leopard Frog Gail...you can tell by the circular 'wart' on it's face side.

Daughter looks like her mama, doesn't she? Glad she had a safe trip. And the frog is quite a guy. I found a tiny little tree frog in the leaves of my coneflowers, but the sun was so bright that the photos are crummy. Maybe I'll see him again.

Oh I'm glad they had a safe trip! They look pretty happy. Cool frog..I have no idea about if he is a bullfrog or not. Have a great week!~

Looks like a very fun time! So glad you finally got your frog shot - I love frogs. Something quirky and fun about them! Your comment reminded me that the things we want/are looking for are often right in front of us, but it takes someone else to point them out. Have a blessed day, Gail!

Petra Pavlátková said...

Being depressed with nothing to do? Can't believe you ever have nothing to do, judging from your posts! :)

Congrats on capturing your dream, the frog has beautiful eyes!

The ladies seem to having enjoyed the party, nice memories for sure.

Barb Brookbank said...

Yay for capturing a frog - great shot! I caught one on my phone last week - I need to share that! Glad to hear you're busy and happy, Gail! Thanks for always dropping by and saying hello!

Carole M. said...

I'm loving that bull-frog too; great to have someone point it out for you that day. Lovely 'girls' photos too; happy days for them

Slamdunk said...

Glad the frog cooperated. We have a pond not too far from us where during the summer, we can usually spot 10-15 frogs. It is lots of fun for the kids.

Glad your daughter had fun.

Linda said...

Cool bullfrog... but now that song is running through my head!

Joy to the world, all the boys and girls...

Glad that your lovely daughter and fiance made to England!! What a great trip.
And your frog -- great shots!! I tried for hours to get a good shot of my cousin's pond that was full of bullfrogs. they just wouldn't hold still when I got somewhat close.
