Watery Wednesday and Nature Notes

I am combining Watery Wednesday and Nature Notes this week.


We are coming towards the end of our walk in Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge, and I will always be grateful to fellow nature lovers with pointing fingers. A couple we came across were staring at the pond and at first I couldn't see what they were staring at, and when I asked they told me that there was a frog out there. Indeed there was. In the top photo you can see him left of center, and below he is in the middle.


This shot is a bit blurry but I still enjoyed the effect of it, and enjoyed seeing the frog so close up after cropping.



Thank you 2sweetnsaxy for hosting this great meme.

  13. How lovely! I enlarged them to see the object of interest. Great post Denise. I did not even notice that they are blurry because they come out quite clear in my end.

    This kind of comment form I prefer as opposed to the Embedded Below Post ...

    Will be away till the weekend and be in time for Today's Flowers.
