Easter Yellow

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Colour Challenge: Easter Yellow.

Now I’ll admit that I have no idea what makes a shade/tone of yellow an Easter Yellow but I have recently photographed a few yellow objects.

Common Frogs mating

My Flora and Fauna Friday post this week is a continuation of last week’s post of a male Common Frog (Rana temporaria) croaking to attract a mate.

This week a pair of Common Frogs are mating in a garden pond at Hatherton near Nantwich in southern Cheshire, England. This is known as amplexus, males develop nuptial pads to help them clasp the female. This allows them to kick away rival males.

Common Frog

My Flora and Fauna Friday post this week is the Common Frog (Rana temporaria) found throughout much of Europe as far north as Scandinavia and as far east as the Urals.

Other common English names include the European Common Frog, European Common Brown Frog and European Grass Frog.

This is a male croaking to attract a mate, their throats turn pale/white in the breeding season. Males take up residence in a suitable breeding site and croak to attract females.

This individual was photographed in a garden pond in Hatherton near Nantwich in southern Cheshire, England.

Giant Butterflies

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: None Alive Animals prompt.

As is sometimes the case I had a few ideas for the prompt before changing my theme for the post when I started selecting photos.

I changed my theme after coming across a photo of one of the giant butterfly garden ornaments I sometimes pass on my walks around the neighborhood. There are three of them and I have photographed them many times over the past few years with a variety of cameras and lenses.
