The Frog Princess

Princess Nagger has a thing about catching goldfish from our pond out .  She likes to catch one (or three) in a container, keep it in the house overnight for observation, 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 can see, thanks to the excessive 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?

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Yep that was me at her age! My nickname even to this day is Frog! And my husband’s as a child was bullfrog, I thought that was comical!

  4. 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.

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. 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?
