Special day today

May 2 is a very special day for us because its our weddingday.
Today we are married 5 years !!
AND
my daughter Lindy (from my 1th marriage) has her birthday today
she's turning 24 years.
Happy birthday Lindy !!

I did tell you I was going to put more photo's that I took with my new camera.
I made some pictures of our garden pond (which is about 180" x 120")
(click pictures to enlarge)

The birds are using this bowl to take a bath in

Some of the goldfish that are in the pond (a total of over 30)

And I made several pictures of our frogs in the pond.
We have 3 of them, 1 female and 2 male.
The light green one (in the middle) is the female.

The frogs make noise by pumping air into their vocal pouches
These sacs serve as a resonating chamber, allowing the frogs to SING!
Male frogs vocalize by squeezing their lungs with their nostrils and mouth shut. Air flows over their vocal chords and into their vocal sacs blowing it up like a bubble gum balloon

I think this frog looks abit like Kermit

Its mating season so they climb on top of each other :)

Yes Kermit is on top of the female !!

Three of a kind LOL

The female is flooting on the water

Well lets hope there are many baby frogs next year :)
