"Love Hurts" is the name of a song performed by Nazareth (Scottish rock band), written and composed by Boudleaux Bryant, American country music songwriter.
Some lyrics, music and ice-cream box.... what do I have in mind? Love is fine in general - I am OK with it :) but sometimes it might be disturbing to others. This is what happened. My garden pond was filled with love last week and it was so loud, that I couldn't sleep. Froggies had no mercy on other guys around, that express their love in more silent way.
It was funny to hear and watch them during the day, when the huge baloons on both sides of the head was filling with air and sound.
When night was starting, they didn't want to stop. At certain moments in the day it was becoming little too loud, when magpies were coming while following cats and screaming on them. From my observation, dear professor, we can draw a conclusion that frogs like magpies. They like to sing together.
After my first night, that I couldn't sleep because of frogs, I was determined to move them somewhere else, but I couldn't catch them. On the second night I slept OK, being tired from previous one. My husband after getting up, hardly opened his eyes, walking half-consciuous to bathroom, said first: "Yes, frogs have to go".... He caught them without any problems (stronger hunting instinct? I don't know).
This ice-cream box was their train to better place.
Doesn't it look fresh and inviting? This is a lake 1-2 km away from me, 10000 time bigger than my pond.... with a lot other frogs.... and maturing ducks - you can see on the bottom of the picture ..............
This picture above is taken in my pond, where I spotted a frogspawn.... so young ones will come one day.... right?
Do you think I shall remove it?
