The mysterious sound in the bog

To begin with, it was silence that dominated natures sound scape.
Weakly I could hear the children play on the other side of the lake, but then there was this deep low-frequency engine sound.
That sounds like a motocross track nearby, I said.
We stopped and looked across the bog.
Then we caught sight of millions of eyes in the water between the grasses
Hmm! Well at least a hundred.
The bog was alive. Hundreds of frogs were for congress.
A form of song contest, I think 🐸🐸🐸

  1. Sing away, froggies! They’re like certain members of my family— technically it’s godawful singing, but it makes me happy to hear nonetheless
    You heard motocross, sometimes it’s a 1000 squeaking doors, and sometimes like turkeys gobbling. Happy spring! 😃

    • I love that descriptions of yours, Robert. I will do my best to find the creaking doors and the gobbling turkeys.
      Happy spring to you too!! 😊

  2. Love your frogs, Hanna. I had a similar experience this week when I accidentally came across hundreds of frogs mating and spawning!!

    • Thanks Elisabeth! Sometimes nature make you wonder. That’s the wonderful part of a walk.
      ‘The Frog Season’ has begun 😊

      • Would you believe, I’ve never seen a frog close up before, but this week made up for it. There must have been several hundred of them!!

    • Hi Graphicgrub. It’s an interesting experience. I know the sound of green frogs, but not the ‘engine sound.’
      Ah! Now I have identified the frog. It’s the Common Frog.
      Further more I found out that if a Common frog is threatened by an enemy it can make a defending scream. You can check it out on YouTube if you like 🐸

  3. Oh my word. That is so cute. I am glad that they were frogs and not toads. Quite a different reaction if they were our cane toads….
