6/16/06 - Bullfrog

Walking along the marshy edge of a small lake trying to get in position to get a shot of a water lily. Stopped, set up my tripod, looked to see where in the muck I put the legs and saw this bullfrog. It made me completely forget why I was in the swamp; had to come back a 2nd time to finally do the water lily.
MOSQUITOs!!! Eaten alive; not one or two but clouds of them. Check here and look at the image dated 6/16 and labeled Eating a Mosquito. It took this dragonfly almost a minute to chew & swallow a mosquito. Gotta' eat faster, Dragonfly; the mosquito population is getting way ahead of you.

other sizes: small medium original auto

Great image. The little rascals are seldom so cooperative for me.
