Things are just BIGGER in the South
It's true, I wouldn't lie to you. We have bigger bugs, bigger accents, bigger swamps, bigger bugs, bigger animals, and bigger bugs. Gee, did I say bugs three times? Well, we really do have super humongous bugs down here. The other night the boys found this.......... Although, it's not a bug, this frog has to be large to eat the big bugs. You think I zoomed in but no, not really! All I had to do was hold the camera just a bit closer. My subject was already big! I just don't think amphibians should get this large. Here is the frog in all it's glory! Big Cowpoke was so excited about the frog. Mr. Cowboy kept saying, "Those are frying legs!" Seriously, is that all that southern men think about? Frying up something? I just wanted the kids to put it in the pond. But first the poor bullfrog had to endure some human torture. And then Cowpokette had to endure her big brother chasing her around with a huge frog. She didn't want anything to do with it's slimy body. I don't blame her. I didn't touch the frog either! Big Cowpoke was on the hunt for the other bullfrog that was living in an old water trough. He was bound and determined to find his own huge frog. But that big frog got away. He was a little bummed. The big boys posed like it was some huge rare fish they caught. Then the poor frog was let go in the pond. I bet that was the happiest bullfrog ever. I was a pretty happy Mom too. I really don't do well, with slimy frogs. In fact, frogs in general freak me out. I really do not like them little, let alone super huge.
