Great fun!
Thanks. Yes, the owner of this small shopping center has a menagerie all throughout: lions, pigs, turtles, nymphs, gargoyles. And, of course, the ooooming frogs. As Piet has noted, in the evening, they croak. Shoppers then know time of day. And whether blue light specials are on their way. Matt

I love the picture! Great, out-of-the-box angle. Back light! But I can still see into the shadow. Strong texture. And of course Piet's poem. (OK)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Another good spotting, and nice angle on it, but Piet's poetry makes it so much more! Thanks to you both for a smile this droopy afternoon.

A frog's mantra? How fun! I hope you'll share their friends with us too! S-
