It has fish,
(John looking for frogs)
We sit out on the back deck after a barbeque with a drink and Serbian music playing, and listen to the water in the pond, walk up on the deck and feed the fish, look at the lilly pad blossoms and try to get a look at the frogs -- of course at night the frogs also serenade us. The frogs hide most of the time.
Dragan and Alice talked about some real big frogs that were in the pond -- sometimes if you are lucky they come out of the water onto the gravel shore or on one of the lilly pads. We kept checking that evening and never saw a big frog.
The next morning Alice and I are out on the deck relaxing. Alice says "Look, Regina. One of the big frogs is out sitting on the gravel." I look and look and don't see it. Then she tells me, "He is near the bridge." So I look again and sure enough, there he is! I am thrilled! I grab my camera, creep slowly and quietly nearer and nearer to the pond so I can take a picture...
Wanting to get a better picture, I move ever so slowly towards the pond, crouched down near to the ground. I whisper to Alice "He is so big! I am getting great pictures"
I continued to use stealth tactics to get pictures of this huge frog without scaring him off....
Alice then says to me "Throw a rock at him, and make him jump." I tell her, "No...I don't want him to jump back in the pond. I want him to stay here."
Then Alice says, "It's not real!"
And I take a better look.......
And I realize it is a fake, decorative frog! By this time Alice is laughing so hard I thought she would start crying....
She got me! It was a good one -- I was buying it!
Did I mention Alice is a good friend????
