I haven’t seen a bullfrog that big in ages!!! Wow 🤩
Hi Eleanor. We have lots of big bullfrogs. The bullfrogs decimated our leopard frog population.
Oh my! Really? I had no idea! How interesting.
Bullfrogs are invasive. They eat everything they can get into the mouths with includes, frogs, snakes, mice, fish, birds and insects. Larger snakes with eat the bullfrogs along with the herons, cranes, raptors, raccoons and other predators.
I wonder if it takes a ribbing from its friends or does it take no bull – intrigued minds want to know.
Given the fact that Bullfrogs will eat anything they can get in their mouths, I would say they don’t take a lot of bull and they would certainly eat a bull if the could. Thanks Brian.
You photograph all the creatures I love, Timothy.
Fantastic visual axes in this photo – and i love the cool expression of the bullfrog.
Thanks, Rudi. That’s the standard Bullfrog expression.
Bazooka I hope, or he might be reflecting on you!!! 🤣🤣🤣
Excellent shot, my friend and haiku!
The Bazooka it was. Thanks, Marina.
This Bullfrog reminded me of this place in Ohio where they have Jumping Frog Contests every year. One summer one of my students won the contest as he had a very large Bullfrog.
Cool picture Tim…
The big bullfrogs can really jump. Thanks, Nancy.
Now Timothy… talking words, these three lines are wonderful.
Thanks, Shey. I happy you liked them.
Of course I did. I love your posts.
This is what I look like when I’m trying to ignore my cat meowing and clawing at the door while I’m working. Didn’t know I resemble a bullfrog but I know now!
We call it having a “frog face”. You have a “frog face” when you are in the state of being you described. Thanks, aveRAGE.
You are giving us your lovely poetic side, Timothy. Wonderful and fabulous image!
He’s a beauty. They can really make a lot of noise! 🐸
They sure can be noisy. Especially when they get together to have a croak fest. Thanks, Holly.
They are more annoying than Cicadas!
The bullfrogs are far enough away we don’t hear them form the house, but they would be very annoying listening to them carry on all night long.
The frogs are not far from me, a waterway out back. The annoyance comes and goes. I’ve gotten somewhat used To it.
You need to talk your alligators eating frogs instead of ducks.
I’m not getting that close!
You could tie a note on a rock and throw it to the alligators.
How about I tie a frog to a rock?
That would work. Frog for food and a stone for their gizzards.
Sounds like dinner ☺️
A well rounded and solid meal.
lovely haiku and picture Timothy. don’t let the cats find him. There was one in a clients garage this morning when I was working with her.. 🤣
Fortunately, the cats don’t get out where they can play with bullfrogs. A little frog help?
naaah i didn’t think so.. which is a good thing. I wish… I couldn’t find the poor guy when I left to let it outside. 🤷♀️
That is a beautiful image, Tim. I miss hearing bullfrogs, we don’t have them around my area. We have lots of tree frogs, some who have been taking refuge from the heat and drought in flower pots.
We don’t have tree frogs. Too dry, I would guess. Altitude might be and issue, also.
When I hear bullfrogs, my heart sags a little, for I know they will alter the natural status of the pond. But that facial expression you captured here, and their wonderful bellowing, make them a unique creature. Great photo Timothy.
Thanks, Jet. You have to love bullfrogs for how big and silly they are, but then you have to hate them for their invasiveness.
Hi Tim, wonderful haiku. Love the aloof look of the bullfrog’s face. The photo is marvelous, everything is glistening!
Thanks Mia. The water shimmers in sunset. He’s alert, but chilling out.
I like all the different colors and textures and the frog’s contemplating face.
Interesting capture and complementary words, Timothy. Looks like you were at his level, eye level that is. 😆
Hi Michele. I has up above him, but he was at a distance. The 400mm lens foreshortens the image and makes it look like we were closer to eyelevel than we were in reality.
🐸 📷 👏🏼
That’s a nice looking bullfrog!
Haiku good, too!
Stick stuck in mud?
Thanks, Resa. It’s hard to say on the stick. It’s either stuck in mud or it part of a branch lying under water.
That bullfrog looks like a real character!
He parobaly is. Like old Jeremiah. Thanks, Tiffany.
The play of light on the water’s surface is interesting. You captured a handsome bullfrog there!
I think he is quite vain. Thanks, KT.
I think you have him pegged right.
At first I thought you wrote bullfrog shtick! 🙂
Not EEeven! Thanks, Teri.
