Hah, Phil. True but he was moving so fast initially I was afraid I wouldn't catch him at all so I went with video. Then he thought he was safe and stopped. I snapped it quickly and he was off again and into the bushes.
Ha ha, took me more than a minute to find it. But, oh, so pretty! I love frogs.
Tonight on my way back from chores, I saw a Red Legged frog -Rana Aurora, by the creek. I was so glad, as this is my first spotting for this year. They are endangered, and we’re always afraid we will never see them again☹️.
When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.
I found a frog in my room on a morning a few weeks ago. All night I had been hearing something, but I didn't know what.
The previous day I had been hosing my garden, which is something I don't do often but we had had a very dry spell. The outside door I had left open for a spell, because the hose pipe went through it. Then it finally started to rain, and I also liked the door open to enjoy the rain.
I guess I wasn't the only one liking the rain; there was a loud frog concert that evening, and some creatures will have jumped places where they didn't jump before.
So I found this one in a flower pot, next to a baby squash I was growing. I carried it back to the waterside - still seemed to me a better place for it.
The frogs in the previous pictures took me slightly less time to find!
Finally I get to play in this thread as a contributor! I was out getting water at the faucet on the side of the house this evening. If they hadn't jumped, I never would have seen them. I immediately thought of this thread. The first one is fairly difficult, and there are two frogs in it. The second picture I consider very challenging, and there is one frog in it.

Since I don't generally carry a camera when I'm climbing my orchard ladder to pick Scarlet Runner beans that are 10 ft off the ground, I can't post pictures of the two tree frogs that were basking on leaves up there. I need to go picking again, so maybe I could risk the camera and see if they're still there.
