Watching & Being Watched

Opossum Stare

Green Frog - The Look

Tree Frog Dreamy-Eyes

Eying the Offerings

Eye to Eye - Heart to Heart

Crayfish mound eyes.


The Green Frog and Opossum skull we're just a few feet apart. On a beautiful Spring day I found the contrast a bit sobering. Still, I recognize that's the name of the game - the 'circle of life'. My tastes run very much to the renewal, rebirthing portion of that circle and I'll bet I'm in good company.

There sure are a lot of eyes out there this time of year - a whole lot of lookin' goin' on. CHECK?

I couldn't leave a comment earlier. I love the pictures! Each of them are worth more than 1000 words.I think the green frog is my favourite.

Oh shoot, I screwed up and lost a comment...

Again, CHECK CHECK CHECK.

You capture the best in nature. Do you live in a nature wonderland, or something????

Pairs, couples, that time of year...for love.

You really brightened my day after a dreary, wet weekend.

Cathy - you didn't need words for this post. Your photos are worth remembering.

Whoo--a whole lot of eyes. A most interesting combination of looks. The cycle of life is what it's all about!

You are so clever the way you come up with such simple but effective themes.

I love that wide-mouth grin on the frog. There is always something to grin about in Nature.
