Jeremiah

Bullfrog-3

Why does my mind start singing the old Three Dog Night song every time I see a bullfrog?

"Jeremiah was a bullfrog, he was a good friend of mine..."

 

Bullfrog-1

We have several frogs in our ponds (the lucky ones who as tadpoles escaped the hungry mouths of the koi and goldfish...), but Jeremiah is the one I see every day, hanging around in the big pond outside my kitchen window.

He mostly just floats around in the water, no doubt hoping a bug will fly too close to him...

 

Bullfrog-5

...but occasionally I'll catch him out sunning (when the sun is out, which hasn't been often these past several days...).

He's one big boy!!!  

I'm sure he must be a boy...but how does one tell on a frog???

 

Bullfrog-4

He's watchful and wary if anyone tries to get too close.

When the grandkids come over, he wisely disappears for awhile...

But I love having him around, our very own...

....Jeremiah.

(now I'll be singing his song in my head all day long!)
