With This Frog, I Thee Wed…

To have and to hold (carefully),
To love, honor and obey,
To make lots of “squee!” noises at,
To feed lots of munchy little flies,
Until we both shall croak.

  15. Denise A. says:

    It’s true. I really miss the constant, high-pitched froggy drone out in the rice fields outside my house in Japan. (No sarcasm; I really do. And cicada sounds.) But not all countryside creatures are quite so cute in Japan. Once I found a giant, hairy mountain spider in my bathtub, must’ve been 6 inches across. Not cute.

  16. Martha in Washington says:

    Oh, I wish I could see his cute little froggy smile!

  17. Eeeeeeeew! (doing the oogie dance)

  18. Okay, how many other people looked at this picture and immediately looked at their own knuckles for scale? Almost impossibly teeny froggy!

  19. A frog he would a-wooing go
    wether his mother would let him or no.
    With a rowley, powley, gammon and spinach,
    Heigh ho! says Anthony Rowley

    Man, ya got me AGAIN!

  23. I’ve read of frogs smaller than mosquitoes.

  24. Wow! That is indeed a much smaller froggy specimen than this one.

  25. I’m glad that wasn’t the other way.
    Mosquitoes bigger than frogs D:

    I used to see this kind of tinsy frog when I lived up in the north of Norway. I mean it had dots though (this was like 20 years ago, so it might not have had dots). Wonder if it’s a related breed 🙂
