We love frogs at our place.
Love, love, love them!
Since we have lived on the Yorke Peninsula (7 years this year!) we have often found little Spotted Marsh Frogs under our wooden railway sleepers or unused corrugated iron.
They are gorgeous little critters.
This Winter we went tadpoling in Kadina for the first time and caught 6 tadpoles. It was a fun morning.
We also found our first frog of a different breed...scroll down to look at this big beauty!
Buried under our newly layed gravel!
The photo below shows the Man of The House's hands holding the container to give you some idea as to the size of the frog.
And interestingly enough, my son had borrowed a frog field guide from the school library for the weekend! I love field guides and what perfect timing for us.
He/she was so pretty; bright and beautiful. The book told us it was a Painted Frog and normally found lower on the Yorke Peninsula than where we live.
We kept it for an hour or two and fell in love then we decided to let him free in a leafy, green area of the yard with plenty of hiding and digging places.
Bye bye froggy, perhaps we'll come across you another day.
