Quand les crapauds chantent le beau temps s'avance
When toads sing there's good weather ahead
During the spring mating season, amorous toads do croak quite a bit as well as make beelines for water anywhere they can find it. Guest photographer and friend Sylvia, who is never without her smart-phone's photo function, was able to get a close-up of this French crapaud after she and her husband fished him out of their swimming pool in the rural south of France. Merci!
un crapaud: a toad
chanter: to sing
sauter: to jump, to leap, to skip
coasser: to croak
