Wood Frog?

Wood Frog

Imagine my surprise yesterday morning when I stepped out of the house and found this little frog on the step. The temperature was near freezing. The sun had risen high enough to cast a beam of warm light on the stone step. Cold blooded though it was the frog had crept out of its sleeping quarters to this warm beam of light. It remained there motionless while I passed by several times. At one point I advanced the camera within inches of this cold creature. A short time later the frog moved out of sight.

This encounter made me thankful that I could generate my body heat from within and not depend on an external source.
