CRITTER DAY THURSDAYS -- The Newest Member of our Aquarium

Camera - Konica Minolta
Film - Kodak Max ISO 200
Shutter Speed - 0.7 seconds
Aperture Setting - f-16 Aperture Mode
Lens - Minolta 50mm macro lens
Scanning Method - My scan from my cheap little hp officejet 5510v all-in-one copy/scanner/faxer/printer

Yesterday I drove just over 90 miles exploring the farthest east side of our peninsula. There are many locations I want to check out for sunrises, full moon rises, and such; but they are in such remote locations that I didn’t feel comfortable driving there in the dark, wee hours of the morning if I didn’t know where I was going. So now I do. It was so quiet and so peaceful out there, and the waters of the Chesapeake Bay were beautiful! And I got to see pelicans. That was way cool. I saw dozens of some other large shorebird as well that I have yet to identify.

This is one of the two large frogs that were ‘rescued’ by my daughter after Ernesto blew through a few weeks ago bringing down several trees in our yard. He is so cute!!

Oh, and speaking of falling trees, I got my van back yesterday after twelve days in the shop. Looks good. And no more trees left by where I park it to drop their limbs down upon my ride again.

Glad to know you had your van back, Micki. We just had typhoon earlier today in Manila. Trees were uprooted and zync roof were flying. Pretty scary.

Cute little creature you have there. :-)

I was reading someplace that there are over 5,000 species of frogs and toads. Could be they are all headed your way now the croak has got round! This little critter is another beaut and his eyes are absolutely great.

Love the little friend for the aquarium!
He's a cutie, and lucky that you rescued him. Great pix!
Come on over to NM. We never have "Ernestos". Just dry and clear.

Finally!!! Another toad shot! I love the toad shots, and this is no exception. He's so ... uh ... cute! :-)

I'm sure that this guy has never been happier. He's probably so happy that he could croak! I know, bad pun, but what can I say?! ;-)
