Sunbathing Frogs

The bride and I uncovered our water garden a couple of days ago.  It's a free form pool, roughly kidney-shaped and about 20' long and 4' wide.  In the off season I cover it to keep out leaves, using panels I built out of sections of welded wire stock panels, cut to about 5' x 5', then covered with 1/2" hardware cloth.

Anyway, on the first full day when the frogs could now hop out onto the banks, a pair of frogs quickly availed themselves of the opportunity:

And this was the twice-as-large old veteran, nicely hidden among some leaves and the Creeping Jenny ground cover.
