Leopard Frog on Straight out of the Camera Sunday

My husband actually took this picture.  I was jumping up and down with excitement because we now have a frog in our pond.  We built a pond  late last summer and is not completly finished.   I was thrilled that the fish survived the winter.  Now the plants are growing and the fish are thriving.   I consider the addition of a frog to the pond a wonderful bonus.  There was actually two frogs...one a leopard and the other a green frog.   I guess the old adage is true: "Build it and they will come".    Join the fun at Murrieta365.com for Straight Out of the Camera Sunday.

You must have done things ecologically correct to your pond. You husband did a good job photographing the little thing, amid all the excitement.

Frogs in a pond are the sprinkles on an ice cream cone. Well done, husband and wife for making a hospitable home for him/her. What a lovely blog you have, impeccable photos! :-)

I cannot tell you how jealous I am right now. I simply adore frogs and you have 2 of them living in your pond - you lucky duck! =) He looks so happy to be there too. I don't think I could lure him away even if I had a pond to try. ;-) (lol)

Lovely picture! =)

=) Happy SOOC Sunday! (lol) =)

That is a pond of dreams. Out here we end have to be careful not to end up with bullfrogs. They are trying to cull them because they are not native and have become invasive to the point of ruin of all other creatures in the waterways. They have even been seen to pull in a small dog or cat.

How great to have your own frogpond! A great photo of the little fellow as well. Hope he gets some friends there to :-)

Hello! I'm so happy that your pond is working out so well! Your pictures you have on this site are lovely.

I just wanted to let you know though, that this frog that you are calling a leopard frog is actually a green frog. You can tell because the center of the tympanum is light coloured, and the spots on the frog are not bordered by a light colour. Also, a leopard frog would likely have more defined oval spots, as opposed to stripish shapes. No worries though, because many people make this mistake. Also, green frogs travel long distances to get to ponds that suit them, so if they don't survive the winter or something, there is still a good chance you will get more the next year.

Happy Gardening!
