NaPoWriMo – Day 19

Unlike yesterday’s I clearly remember taking this picture! Again not a very good one – grainy from being taken in the late evening in fading light, and so had to be edited, but I digress.

This chap was sitting on the lily pad, oozing some sort of silvery, sticky fluid (which may mean he is actually a she – but your guess is as good as mine!), and generally hanging out! This is the same pond by the way, where I took this picture! We watched it for a long time and I remember Ishaan being rather fascinated with it. Frogs are not a favorite of mine – all that hopping and croaking and sudden wet flicks of the sticky tongue creep me out πŸ˜› But when they’re far enough away, I’m fine, especially when there are pictures to be taken πŸ™‚ I’m glad I found this picture, it reminded me inevitably of The Frog Prince fairy-tale and that’s what inspired the Haiku πŸ™‚

And if the Prince should turn out to be a Princess – my apologies! πŸ˜‰

  1. Too bad it turned out grainy – it’s such a cool water drop he’s sitting in!
    I bet he’s thinking of that pink lily your photographed, and how he can use it to woo his princess πŸ˜‰

    1. LOL…maybe he is πŸ˜‰ But that isn’t a water drop he’s sitting in. It’s something he or she secreted while sitting! I have no clue what it is! It couldn’t be that the Prince is actually a Princess engaged in egg laying could it?!

      1. What? Not water? I kind of hope it’s a princess laying eggs, because to think he wet his pants in anticipation is almost intolerable πŸ˜‰
