FROGGIE WENT A-COURTIN'

Calling all females...
Mating season has kicked off with a cacophonous and entertaining concert of lusty croaking male frogs at the water lily pond of Claude Monet's gardens in Giverny. Incredible as it may seem, the sounds emanating from the frogs' inflated vocal sacs make a noisier-than-ducks commotion. A couple of participants in yesterday's early morning comical chorus are pictured above and featured in the brief video below.

Vocabulary
