Frogs! Spring’s definitely here when the tadpoles start hatching and you see the occasional frog in the mud puddle, despite this decidedly spring-like weather that seems to be plaguing Oregon and Washington lately.
I didn’t just see one frog, but two!
A couple of weeks back when I was out at the barn doing my evening chores, I saw a brown and green frog in the puddle, but by the time I returned in a couple of minutes withe the camera, he was gone.
This one kept insisting on climbing up on my thumb, so I let it have its way…
Thinking no one can see him. Either this frog is oblivious, or that fly is pretty stupid.
Note: To everyone who wanted to know about the virus – it’s gone, thank god. I had the computer up and back to normal in about six hours.
Flowers/Wildflowers – a perfect spring-time challenge! One of the many rhododendrons in our yard… I can’t remember the names of all of them, but Mom knows most the them.
Okay, so not the best shot, but I wanted to combine all the color of the lilac tree, the sky and the leafing out chestnut trees in the background.
In dappled sunlight by the house…
Bees. The weather’s been so nice and actually spring-like the last couple of days and the bees have been out in full force. Yesterday the Transparent apple tree in the yard was humming, there was so many bees it!
I would have put more picture up today, I’ve got a nasty computer virus that I’ve got to take care and reinstall Windows. Now I wish I’d put more of my archives on disc sooner so I don’t have to spend most of the day doing it!
