The Frog Princess

Princess Nagger has a thing about catching goldfish from our pond out back.  She likes to catch one (or three) in a container, keep it in the house overnight for observation, then release it back into the wild pond the next day.  So when I saw her skulking about the pond over the weekend, I figured that’s what she was up to:

As you can see, thanks to the excessive heat we had all summer followed by the incessant rain, things have gotten quite a bit overgrown out by the pond.  Hopefully Mother Nature will get on the proper meds to treat her Menopause so I can finally get out and get things back under control. 

Princess Nagger spied me taking pictures, so I ventured around to the other side to get a beter angle:

That’s when I spied it.  The thing she was stalking.  A frog:

She stayed perfectly still watching it watching her, waiting for the perfect opportunity to snag it:

But the frog (wisely) hopped away the moment the dogs started barking.  I think someone was a little disappointed that the frog didn’t successfully get captured, don’t you?

Love those photos! All the overgrown greens and shrubs are just perfect. It’s like a scene from a fairy tale.

Bummer that her frog prince got away. My girls would have tried to catch that frog too. He was a beauty.

That’s so cute that she releases the fish back the next day! That pond looks like such a cool place to explore, just the kind of thing I loved as a kid.

I was thinking the same thing as Run DMT and Linda. It does look like a fairy tale! And she like a fairy. I wish I had a magical pond to hang out in like that.

Love that she was wanting to catch a frog and waited so patiently for it. To bad it got away…but I’m sure the frog is happy that he did. Great photos!

My gardens are completely overgrown too. I love the picture where she sees you spying on her, camera in hand.

It might be overgrown, but it makes such a nice hiding spot. If it was me, I’d be glad she didn’t catch the frog to bring in the house. Although, I used to catch frogs, toads, and tadpoles when I was little.

24 joe September 28, 2011 at 9:17 pm

You little dolly might have been upset her little green friend wasn’t captured, but I will bet you and the frog where happy! Not to be too pedantic, but it kinda looks more like a toad?

I would have been so disappointed. Feeling so sorry for her.
