'As we rounded a corner with our pond on our left hand side, there were so many Mallard ducks lying in the grass. It was so peaceful. Jackson does not get excited for the ducks. It is like he knows they have almost a "twin" resemblance with their smooth heads. Mallards are wiener dogs with wings. If I had a duck as a pet, I would imagine him to be like my pups. Loyal, cuddly, and SO stubborn. Anyway, as we rounded the literal corner and the ducks were lying in the grass, Jack and I could not ignore the sound of the frogs.
As we turned the corner we could hear the frogs chirping loudly. The ducks lie soundly in the grass while the frogs go crazy. Then, the ducks begin to walk towards the water leaving their comfort spots on the growing grass. As they begin their decent to the pond below quacking a continuous sound, the frogs stop chirping. It truly is the strangest thing when it is like they realize someone may be watching them sing a solo that they know may land them as the next American Idol, but are not brave enough to sing to the casual walker byer. The frogs went silent. The ducks quacked a continuous quack. THEN, all was silent. It was like they were communicating. Suddenly, ONE frog began a sound which sounded like a non threatening alarm, but one of warning for the ducks and other wildlife in the area. The lone frog went from a chirp to a type of yodel. The ducks and frogs responded with silence as Jackson and I made our way through their area. When we were about 1 foot past their pond they began to make their noises again.
Seriously, with their small eyes, can they really see us?? It may be the vibration in the ground, but it was obvious they knew we were there. I believe there is a kind frog and the ducks listen to him.
I think there is something to be said of the kind frog in our lives. The small being with the loud voice.
How many of you know a frog in your life. This person may be a small part of your day but after observation you see how much they have a HUGE impact. Who is your frog??
