  1. That's a stunning tadpole photo, very well done! Posted 4 months ago
    1. Thanks! They are easy to photograph in this pond because they like to sun themselves on the rocks along the edges of the pond where the water is very shallow. Posted 4 months ago
  2. Great shot Christine. Did you use any filters Posted 4 months ago
    1. You mean on the camera lens? No..Well, maybe -- I have a UV filter that I keep screwed on to the end of my lenses to protect them. But, I don't know if that does anything to the photo because it's just clear glass. Posted 4 months ago

The American bullfrog often simply known as the bullfrog in Canada and the United States, is an aquatic frog, a member of the family Ranidae, or “true frogs”, native to much of North America. This is a frog of larger, permanent water bodies, swamps, ponds, and lakes, where it is usually found along the water's edge. On rainy nights, bullfrogs, along with many other amphibians, travel overland, and may be seen in numbers on country roads.
