A bit of Silly Sunday wildlife for a change today.
This frog was not very wild at all.It had never moved from this position when I returned a couple of hours later !!
V2--I waited for some time for the dog to drop the ball into the hole.But it was not that good as it kept dropping it into the water !!

I agree with Barry! But it puts a smile on my face, so it’s a good thing.

Thanks for the smile Norbert

A pity you didn't pick the frog up. You could have made it the start of a series, like Moira with her glove.
Come to think of it, she hasn't done one of those for a while...
