Most of this frog, including his mouth, is under water. What planning! He jumped onto a lily pad and, though it dipped below the surface, it did hold his weight. At 4:30 on a September afternoon, he seems content to enjoy the long rays of remaining sunlight. (The brown parts of the frog are underwater.)

    I think that he must have been so busy admiring that lily that he did not notice that he was sinking! Great capture!

  • LOL Cute, but it was HIS jump that caused the slight submerging as well as the tiny waves (far side) and the very tiny bubbles at the near side of the pad. ☺☺☺
