Hoppy May

I always look forward to a visit from the migrating red-breasted grosbeaks each spring.  I noticed this sweet lady this morning but haven’t seen a male yet. 
Grosbeaks are in the same family, Cardinalidae, as cardinals.  Can you see the family resemblance?
This robin hit the jackpot by our neighborhood lake.
Evidence that spring is all around us.
Several frogs were sunning themselves in our neighborhood lake earlier in the week when the weather was nice.  There were only a few pink petals floating in the water but this little fella found one.
I’m not sure who was watching who.  Those eyes 👀!!
I love how you can really see this frog’s tympanic membrane 👂.
The eating must be good at the lake 🦟
I have no idea what this is but it was pretty cool with all the bubbles inside it’s top.  If it was an inkblot, I’d say it looks like a person walking down the street with an invisibility cloak over the top half of their body.

I hope you are enjoying your week.  See you next time!  ❤️, Amy
