Silly Tuesday frog prince

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 3 April 2012 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

I was driving up Church Bank in Jarrow on the way to the supermarket when I saw four or five photographers huddled together near a small pond opposite St. Paul's church, and I though to myself "what sort of silly things are they snapping at on this bright Tuesday morning?"
So on the way back I had to stop to take a look, Mrs. Curly wasn't really amused!
