I was just checking to see how the tadpoles were growing, when I saw this fellow on the edge of the pond at the top of one of the exit cloths. Usually the adults jump into the water as soon as I approach.

I didn't see the insect on his eye until I was processing the image.

He is a charmer James, not seen a frog for a few years now, maybe not looking close enough!

They are well-camouflaged and most of the time they stay very still. There have always been frogs in the garden, even before I dug the pond last summer but I only saw them when they jumped out of the way of the lawn mower. I'd been looking into the pond  and scooping of some of the excess duckweed for a few minutes before I saw him.
