After the disappearance of the two frogs I saw during the icy weather I had begun to think I would not see any more in the pond this Spring. It was quite a surprise yesterday when I spotted a common frog.
Soaking up the Sun
In reflective mood
After watching for a while I noticed there was another frog. Occasionally the first would make its way across to the other but it was not interested and moved rapidly away. It was only after wandering round the pond trying to get out of the wind to take some video that I noticed a pair coupled together in a corner.
Who loves you, baby?
No sign of spawn when I checked at tea time but I am hopeful there may be some in the next couple of days.
A short while ago Shirl (Shirl's Gardenwatch) was wondering what difference a 400mm zoom would make over the 200mm. The picture below shows photos taken from the same place with the lens set at 200mm and then 400mm.
If nothing else it means being able to have larger crops of more distant objects of interest.
