Down at the pond.



Down at the pond, I photographed this friendly frog, who came to say hello by swimming up



close to me, and then circled around and swam in the opposite direction. I wonder if he recognized


 
me as the lady with the camera, who doesn't mean any harm, and just likes to take photos! 
 


Byeee froggie, thank you for being so friendly



On another day his cousins were equally obliging, and didn't move as I clicked away...



and I dare say enjoying the cleaner water after the rain we had last week.



Fully grown this tiny critter will eventually be a  recognizable newt.



Seen overhead at the pond a buzzard was hovering,



Another poor shot of a buzzard, but I have included it to also share the terrain with you.



To finish my post yet another buzzard, ..I will open a bottle of champagne and celebrate when I get a decent shot of these wonderful birds! That reminds me, time for a gin and tonic!:)) See you!

Good morning, I love the cute froggies. They are adorable. Love the buzzard in flight shots. Awesome! Thank you so much for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!

What a gorgeous pond! And that is a beautiful frog! Loved seeing the newt "tadpole"...how on earth did you know what he was? I would have assumed another frog! Great shots of the buzzard too. Wonderful post.

If you continue to take its pictures, it will soon turn into a modern Prince.

You did a great job with the frog pictures, the clarity of the pictures, green on green like that. Now I'm left wondering how you managed to be on the same eye level as a flying Buzzard? perhaps you live on a hillside?

What a beautiful Frog, and the Buzzard, flying. Thanks.

How obliging of the frogs to come over and pose so well! You captured them perfectly in their aquatic paradise!
I enjoyed the buzzards too so high up and free!
Have a lovely Saturday!

And I'm glad you DID share the photo to show off the terrain...wonderful, colorful landscaping. I'd love to visit.

Those images of the newts...wow!! I am totally impressed. In fact all your photos today, from the frogs/newts/hill country/buzzards....perfect outing for us all.

Pięknie pozowała do zdjęć ta żaba ... mam wrażenie, że była zadowolona. Bardzo ładne zdjęcia ptaka w locie. Podobają mi się takie fotki. Pozdrawiam

Beautiful and very scenic place.

Mama Zen said...

Beautiful shots! Love the frog.

Polly said...

aahh I love your frog, he clearly likes posing for you :-) Beautiful photos.

Hannah said...

The frog is so cute to pose for you, he looks like he is floating on air. The slopes are wonderful, so wild and unspoiled for the birds to soar over.

Wonderful series of photos of delightful critters ~ love the frog ones!

Happy Week to you,

Very nicer pictures.. Congratulations and greetings

Great shots of the frog swimming. It seems to me we hardly ever see them doing this. They are always on land when they are photographed.
