Do you see what I see????

I am not sure if you can see why I took the picture without enlarging it...even then I might have to identify it for you. Can you see him? It is a male bob white just entering the grass! Picture not very good cause I was trying to get out of the car before he was completely gone. I just was not fast enough.
I seen a muskrat(s)--not sure if it was the same one or two different ones. In basically a big mud puddle right at the side of the road. I bet it was not over 20 ft. across.
In the same pond, I spotted this frog first thing....enlarge it and you will see a second one over at the left side. I didn't see him till I downloaded the picture. I also seen the grandfather of all frogs...I got a picture of him looking my way but it is not blog-worthy. He turned to hop into the grass and I saw how big he was--he looked like one of those big frogs we dissected in biology! You can bet I am going to go back and watch for him. But it may not happen soon.

That looks a great place to stop at... well done on your quick reactions... at least you captured it... I have loads of pictures of fence post and empty branches... I was sure I'd seen birds there when I pressed the shutter.... ha!

Great finds Rose!
I liked the frogs peeking out of the water.

I saw the Bob White---although I may not have seen it without your help.

Great pictures of the muskrat(s) also.

How's the little Princess today???
Hugs,
Betsy

You must have been quick w/ the camera to catch that bob white! Nice shot!

I love these! They all change with a second glance to look more closely. At first I saw only a roadside, a floating bunch of grass, and reeds in a pond (all very pretty)...then after reading, there was the bobwhite and the muskrat and the frogs. You've got sharp eyes, and I loved your post!

Looking at the first I thought it was a picture of a bee among the buttercups.

Don't know anything about muskrats but the mention of dissecting frogs reminds me of my university days and we had to bash live frogs on the head before dissecting them to see their still beating hearts - I rather wish you hadn't reminded me!

What an interesting place...all those critters in one place! Glad you stopped!

I'm often slow on the draw and miss a shot! Working on that problem, though.

Great pictures, Rose. Thanks for sharing your finds with us.

Good for you, Rose. I'm usually too slow to catch such shots. I need to work on that,

Rose: What a neat capture of the quail, I did see it probably from my hunting days. Muskrats are such unusual creatures.
