A lovely morning once again but today got hotter and so probably not as cool in the morning tomorrow. Ah well, it is August so I shouldn't be surprised. We have had really hot here even into September before. So today's image is of a very tolerant Leopard Frog in my pond who let me get very close with my macro lens and get several shots. He even sits on his Lily Pad while I clean the pond around him and very close to his pad. I don't have fish in the pond because I don't want the work that goes with them but I do enjoy the frogs. We had a good rain on Saturday night and I was worried because sometimes the frogs disappear after that for some reason but there were still at least a couple were still around.
