Frogs and toads singing at the local neighborhood pond
I couldn't actually get to the pond because it is on private property, but I recorded the sounds coming from the pond. It was March 14, 2012, and they started last week, so they are a bit early this year.
Frog found in backyard on October 11, 2009
Brian found this frog on a 45 degree day while mowing the lawn. It was very disoriented from the cold. It needed to be near water so it could hibernate. After taking the photographs below, I released it closer to a nearby creek, hoping it will find its way and survive the winter. I took the photos outside in my moss garden. A few were taken with my older Minolta camera.
Henry Ford Estate Frogs, July 14, 2009
The Henry Ford Estate in Dearborn, MI is always a great place to find good creatures to photograph. I went there with my friends Layla and Michelle, intending to photograph insects on flowers, mostly bees, but actually ended up hanging out by a pond for about an hour, photographing the frogs. At one point, all of the frogs in the pond went into a chorus like I have never heard in my entire life. Unfortunately, I was only able to hear it for about a minute and a half before a large group of very disrespectful biology students (who were so ignorant that they questioned each other on what was making the sounds at the pond and no one knew) ruined the whole experience by being incredibly loud, as if they were at a drunken frat party. It was very upsetting and I spoke my mind to one of them as he was leaving and had the nerve to ask me what it was I was finding so interesting at the pond. After we waited about another 1/2 hour, sadly, the frogs still never started up again. I did get some great macro shots of them, which I wasn't sure was possible because some were rather far away.
