I'm in love with a big blue frog
A big blue frog loves me...
- Peter, Paul, and Mary
There's always a surprise in the pond!
No Photoshop color cheating... Kerbluey is just a "frog of a different color"
Compared to a more "normal" pondmate Notice that the eye's iris is toned down from the typical golden color. Does this individual lack a "yellow gene" that affects all its colors?
A frog version of albino? Will it pass on this trait to its offspring, or is it a one-time genetic goof?

Beware the snappers !
That's Kerbluey at the bottom of the picture - and TWO
big snappers lurking nearby.
The big snappers have been cruising around my side of the pond this year - normally they're over at at the far, more "wild", side of the pond. I don't think they bother to take adult frogs... there are plenty of bite-sized tadpoles to support these surprisingly tubby turtles.
A snapper head - when you see it completely out of the
water - is as big as Kerbluey's whole BODY.
