Saturday Snapshot - June 15

To participate in Saturday Snapshot: post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky below. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

We recently went up north to see my husband's family, who live on about 6 acres in the woods.  One of my daughter's favorite things to do when we're up there is to go "frog hunting" with her daddy.  This time was no exception!

Hunting with Daddy

The first catch was a tadpole

Finally, a frog!  Don't worry!  The little guy went right back in the water after we all got a good look at him!

  1. Ha - I've been fishing --really mostly boating-- with my dad but never frog hunting. My dad wasn't the outdoors type. So fine that dad and daughter can share a lovely time with nature!

  2. What fun! I loved catching tadpoles as a kid.

  3. Sadly frog and tadpole hunting is almost gone in Australia. So many species have gone or are in danger of going that we're not meant to catch tadpoles anymore. So I was glad to hear you released your finds back into the wild :-)

  12. A beautiful nature lesson, and leaving fond memories too. Thanks for sharing. I've never seen a tadpole so close up.

  13. Great pictures! Brings back good memories. My friend and I used to take our 4 boys to the local nature center every spring, with nets and buckets, to look at the tadpoles! It was especially cool to see them at different stages of development - some with no legs at all, some with tiny back legs, some almost frogs.

    Looks like your daughter had fun! Enjoy the weekend -

  17. I think I would be worried about injuring a frog if I picked one up, but they are great pictures. I've been by the water, but didn't see any frogs. My Snapshot is http://goo.gl/9IGEs
