Turn up the volume till it hurts.

That’s what our backyard sounds like these days.

It’s mating season for frogs, and they’re out there yelling their wee heads off. A couple of days ago I ventured out with my DSLR and a flashlight and managed to shoot this video. It’s not the best quality—you try standing on a pond-side rock in the pitch dark holding a camera in one hand and a flashlight in the other and then adjust the focus!—but overall I was quite pleased with the results for a first try.

  1. Hey Skadhu, the video link says it’s private. Do I need to log in or something. I know, I know, I can hear them from my house, but we’ve always wondered just how loud it was at your place! heh heh heh

  2. That was fantastic!!! I think you did a great job of it, you wouldn’t catch me out there with a flashlight taking a video of froggies looking for love! Thanks! I’m sending your blog entry to everyone, they can’t believe it when I tell them that the frogs drown out the TV. GG

  3. Hey, they sound like the ones over here. Incredible that you were able to get this video of them and very brave. Debra

  4. I left a comment on your page but I also wanted you to know that I was only able to access the video once I went into the comments section.
