Photo: Frog, July 2007
By Susan Borden
...formerly known as Prince was seen a lot this summer at the lotus bed (what little of it sprouted). Then he went away. Perhaps to run a rich little country like Luxembourg....if he isn't lining the stomach of one of the herons we love so much on our lovely island bird-nation in the middle of Echo Park Lake. Or maybe one of the reunified Eagles ate him.
Anyway, Susan Borden took this picture on July 30. She saw the frog regularly for three to four weeks. I wish I could tell what type of frog this is, but frog ID isn't an area of expertise.
Farewell, my frog.
