One in one million sighting!
« on: August 08, 2018, 05:01:33 PM »
I just had to share with you all.

 It rained very hard earlier, After the storm passed we went for a walk to see if the water was flowing from the silt pond. As we walked we noticed the frogs were content to stay on the banks  of the pond. They usually jump into the pond but we figured they were relaxing after the storm.

Jim noticed this guy and I fortunately had my camera with me.
According to the internet this phenomena is extremely rare to see. It is our first sighting of one.
It is just a common Green Frog that is sapphire blue.

Has anyone here seen one before?

Your wife must of been excited to see it!

I have seen thousands of frogs over the years. Seeing this one was very special.
Since I always carry my camera I was lucky to get a few decent pictures before it dissappeared back into the pond.

Drinking to much mushroom tea?  :o :o :o :o


Might want to get those images copyrighted or see if somebody like NatGeo would buy them if they are that rare of a sighting.

Dye in the water?

Watch where you're going, not where you've been
