Frog Lake Frog

When I was a kid, my family would frequent Frog Lake every summer. It was and still is such a great place to spend the day. It is one of the less popular lakes up in the Mt Hood National Forest, which means it is less crowded -- a definite perk.

Back in the day when we went, the entire shoreline was littered with tiny dime sized frogs. You had to be very careful not to step on them as you walked around. The past few times I have visited, I didn't see even one frog, which was very disappointing. But I was up there this past weekend and there were quite a few! Yay!!! It was a challenge chasing them around with my camera to get a good macro shot of one of them, but this guy stopped just long enough for me to snap my shutter before he hopped away.

It's great that the little frogs are back, he is adorable, and such a different color for a frog.

He really blends in well.

I haven't seen a frog before in these earthy colours. A real cutie.
