Frog Friday # 1


This is an American Bull Frog that I took at NC Botanical Gardens in 2019 a year ago exactly. 
The American Bull Frog is largest frog in North Carolina and they are native to our area in North Carolina . The American Bull Frogs colors are some shades of brown or green. 

The American Bull Frog breeds in the spring and summer in North Carolina and the Female American Bull Frogs can lay up to 12,000 eggs which is amazing to think about. Their call is familiar sound a big time booming " roo-rro-room or jug-o-rum" and these calls can be heard from April to August. 

Male American Bull Frogs can defend their territories from other males in the area and they also do an aggression call against other males if this is willing to happen.

This a Tri- Colored Heron, Which I photographed at Pickney Wildlife Refuge while I was on vacation way back in Hilton Head. The Tri- Colored Herons a very cool waterfowl to photograph and they have different color variants compared to the Great Blue Herons found in Central North Carolina, where I live. If you have a chance to find TriColor Herons you should photograph them and they are just like the other waterfowl that can be found in central North Carolina . This is a Jellyfish, which I photographed at Myrtle Beach during sunset conditions. The photograph came out really cool. Jelly Fish are very interesting subjects to photograph at local beaches.  I decided to use the jelly fish as my subject for this photograph  during sunset conditions. This was also taken at Myrtle Beach when i was on vacation in 2019. This is an
