To my surprise, a frog came up from the pond to the garden where there is a pool and fountain. It had to travel about 50 feet and then hop vertically 2 feet to get to the little pool. How cute he/she was balancing on the side of the rubber liner. Here are a few shots before he jumped into the water. So, why did he make that long a trip when the pond is large enough for hundreds of frogs? Who knows.
Then I wandered down to the pond and hundreds of frogs squeaked as they were startled into a leap back into the water. There are still a few lotus in bloom, so I photographed them. Lovely sunny day thus far.
Enjoy the holiday weekend!
