The little pond is filled with frogs.
Bullfrogs are in the shallows, as still as the rocks that they sit upon.
There are bullfrogs so immobile that they cast reflections in the water.
There are frogs that are half-submerged; one has a flower petal for a hat.
But, the frogs attract hunters!
One hunter is of no cause for concern. This frog didn’t bother to jump away until Scooter’s nose touched hers.
But Lily is a known threat to the pond’s inhabitants.
The frogs know that she is attracted to movement, and although they try to blend into the rocks, they can’t help but hop when she searches through the water celery.
Bullfrogs can be quite long-lived (up to ten years in the wild.) I have a feeling that the frog smartly hiding from Lily by waiting as still as can be up on the boulder (do you see it?) will be in the pond for years to come.
