small olive green frog in blue vessel

A Bleating frog knows a good amplifier, deafening sounds from the metal watering can.

A year ago today I evacuated our home as fire approached. Tears streaming down my face I sent out safe wishes to all the critters large and small.

Bleating frogs were one such critter. We had three in our water tanks and many other tree frogs living in the bush. I fretted for them.

A year on and the nights are alive once again with their calls.
