Of Fish and Frogs

This morning I thought a heavy stick had landed on the protective netting over the koi pond, weighing it under the murky, icy water. I went out to remove it, and discovered not a stick but a frog the size of my fist desperately bouncing on the trampoline-like netting looking for a way in, with two fish watching. (Amused or encouraging?) I rolled up the net & let frog in. (Took 5 minutes of a little cooperation.) Finally in, both fish and frog disappeared into the dark bottom. I came outside to enjoy a little sunshine this afternoon and there are two big froggy eyes surfacing occasionally to spy on me... Wouldn't you love to hear their thoughts?
