Caught these two at it in my back-garden. In the middle of the day. In front of the kids, and without the decency to cover up

Nice clear capture, great color. From her size, I do believe she's done this before, and he may be a little late?

Regards!

Thanks for the feedback.

What was more surprising is that I don't have a pond so they have come a reasonable way to get there.

Great captures.
I believe most frog species mate in water, so this could be quite unusual.
Thanks for sharing.

He has gripped her in slightly the wrong place, hence her "help me, I'm in pain/this is uncomfortable " posture. They must be on their way to a pond & cutting through your garden! He has found her & tried to hop on to "hitch a ride" but mistakenly forced her into that position! Grim thing is, if that were in the water, she'd probably drown before laying her eggs!

Shouldn't this have a Not Safe for Work designation.
