There was a lovely little pond, complete with cattails and waterlilies, which was used for some of the nature classes. I was taking photos, as usual, when one of the camp leaders brought a group of students out to look for reptiles and amphibians.
"Look, there's one!" yelled a student, not three feet away from where I stood.
"I see two over here," another called back. I looked into the pond, but saw nothing unusual.
"What is it?" I asked the boy next to me.
"A frog," he replied. I leaned over and peered into the water. I could hear kids all around the pond proclaiming that they'd "found one".
"Where?" I still saw nothing except water lilies and algae.
"Right there." He pointed at an indeterminate spot in the water, as if I could see exactly where he was looking.
"I still don't see it," I told him.
"There's another one over there, by that leaf- see?" He ran off to join his friend, leaving me to wonder, which leaf? Try as I might, I could not see a single frog, and so, frustrated, I went back to taking pictures.
I had a good time, and took some nice shots. I really didn't give another thought to frogs- that is, until I got home and loaded the pictures onto my computer. As I began clicking through them, I couldn't believe it- right there in front of my face- frogs! They were everywhere!
There are three in this photo... Can you spot them? Click the pic to enlarge if you need to.
This one, I'm pretty sure, was having a good laugh at my expense. (Oops!- I mean, these two- I just spotted another one!)
There are at least three in this photo...
How did I miss this one? I can just hear it laughing its little froggy laugh...
This one's got quite a nerve, hasn't he?
Well, I'm saying it's the bifocal thing. I really don't know what part of my glasses to look through unless I know exactly where I'm looking. Anyway, that's my story, and I'm sticking to it.
