Well Met at Dusk

Tonight, shortly before a rain-obscured sundown, I ran into a princely beast:

It's pretty safe to say that this is a smallish American bullfrog (Rana catesbeiana) because it lacks the dorsolateral ridges characteristic of the green frog (Rana clamitans):

This frog was a great photographic subject- it didn't even flinch when I stuck a camera in its face. If one is to have a career as a prince, one has to be able to deal with the pondparazzi.
