American Bullfrog

American bullfrog at Cromwell Valley Park, Maryland – April 18, 2015

I was very lucky to be able to creep up on this American bullfrog at Cromwell Valley Park last Saturday.

I was surprised that it let me maneuver to get a side view shot of its large external eardrum before hopping back into the pond. My only regret is that I bungled the shot of him hopping away, and perhaps getting muddy and wet.

For local readers, Cromwell Valley Park has a photographer’s blind that overlooks a small marshy area and a moss covered pond, it’s a great place to photograph amphibians.
