Hello friends,
here is the Bullfrog

from Nova Scotia Government website

« Bullfrogs are the last amphibians
to emerge in spring. Their booming
bass call is heard from mid-June to July,
although last year's tadpoles may emerge
a month or two earlier. Males move out
from shore and settle among the water
lilies to call females.

Spawning takes place soon after the females
are grasped by males. She extrudes her eggs
in a huge, film-like mass on the surface
among the water lilies. Bullfrogs produce
as many as 20,000 eggs each year.

The tadpoles take two years to develop
into young Bullfrogs; hind legs appear
after the second winter. Tadpoles hibernate
in the deep silt of the lake bottom. »

Hi Asbed,
Very nice pic of this bullfrog. Nice POV and the lilly pad environment. Do people still eat the legs? I had frog legs a long time ago, no it didn't taste like chicken. Well done.

Hello Asbed,
nice view of this floating frog. The color is so nice and pleasant. The eye is so lively and the inclusion of water lily leaves is artistic to make the view more special.

Bonjour Asbed,
Comme voisine je viens en visite chez ta charmante image de grenouille. Une espèce de grenouille qui est bien de chez vous. J'aime bien le fait d'avoir présenté l'image avec vue sur l'environnement.
Bonne journée

I have yet to have any success with the frog capture friend Asbed. This one is glorious floating among the lily leaves. I like the tone of the water and thanks for sharing.
Kind regards,

Helo Asbed,
A very nice capture of a Bullfrog floating in the water, The POV shows its features with fine sharpness and natural colours with excellent details of the head that is out of the water, especially the eye and the eardrum. Nicely composed with the floating vegetation.
Thanks and best regards,

Buena luz y colores para este baatraco, poco visto por Tn.
Saludos Asbed: J. Ignasi.

Hello Asbed,
Good images of real natural activity always are a delight to view and this is no exception. Not sure aboutthe yello OOF flower bottom left - I think I would have cloned it out. Very well captured. Best wishes.

Hello Asbed,
I remember capturing many of these little guys as a kid in the ponds near home. A nice shot of this particular fellow in his natural habitat.
For some reason we don't seem to have as many frogs here in my area of Ohio as we used to years ago.
