Another image from my little wildlife pond taken this morning during a shower - the little frog was struggling to get from the patio to the water. I helped her in where she was hugged in a mating embrace known as Amplexus by the nearest male. I was pleased they posed for a while Smile

Very Nice.... I have been witnessing a group of common frogs mating in a local woodland pond the croaking sounds beautiful.

Brilliant capture. John (Gio)

Lovely capture. I was going to say something witty like 'so frogs like to do it in the shower too then', but decided against it :-P
