Kermit

Ribbit!

Ribbit!

When I used to watch “Sesame Street”, I always thought Kermit the Frog’s eyes were exaggerated, waaay too big for his body, not to mention Kermit’s mouth.  I know it’s done for effect in a cartoonish sort of way.

Now, I’m not so sure.  My up close and personal encounter with this frog in a nearby pond changed my way of thinking.  His natural camouflage with the duck weed made him almost invisible, I was lucky to spot him.  But his eyes!  Look how big they are; the socket of his right eye (looking away from the camera) looks like a marble stuck on his head.

Just another marvel of nature.  Ribbit!

Thought for the Day:  Everything’s fine today, that is our illusion.                                                                                                                                                      Voltaire
