Was hanging an axe the other night and this little fella showed up to watch.

You can't tell from the pic, but this frog climbed about two feet off the ground to get there, then just sat there intently watching me from about three feet away for well over an hour. In retrospect, I now realize it was most likely a beautiful princess under an evil spell waiting for a kiss, and I missed my chance at "happily ever after." But hey, I had an axe that needed to be hung. And seriously, it makes more sense than a bullfrog interested in learning about how to hang an axe, doesn't it?😊

Jeremiah was a bullfrog
Was a good friend of mine
I never understood a single word he said
But I helped him a-drink his wine
And he always had some mighty fine wine
Singin' joy to the world
All the boys and girls now
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me
And if I were the king of the world
Tell you what I'd do
I'd throw away the cars and the bars and the war
Make sweet love to you
Sing it now, joy to the world
All the boys and girls
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me
You know I love the ladies
Love to have my fun
I'm a high life flyer and a rainbow rider
A straight shootin' son-of-a-gun
I said a straight shootin' son-of-a-gun
Joy to the world
All the boys and girls
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me

Very nice looking frog.  

I find them inside one of my sheds often.  They do a great job on any bugs and spiders that get in there.  I also use a garbage can of water from roof runoff, that holds spare water for the plants, with the lid upside down on it, and the frogs hang out inside of it, eating any mosquito larvae, can come and go under the loose lid.

I like critters that eat bugs. There are often toads and tree frogs aroung there, but a bullfrog is a first. It had been raining, and I guess it was migrating.
 
This looks like a job for .... legal tender! It says so right in this tiny ad:
