Frog Looking For Love

Spring is the most romantic season for all animals, frogs are no exception. The male frogs (Gunther’s Frogs) often emerge from water making loud calls to attract females.








The females, on the other hand, choose to observe in silence in a well hidden place.


This male spotted a female,


and immediately started calling louder and louder.



But the female seemed unamused.


 
This situation continued for a couple of minutes. Then the male frog got impatient and tried to grab her, ending up losing her for good.
 
It was not his lucky day.

I have never been able to get frog fotos. They are too elusive for me. Well done.
