Froggy Scene…

I’m not sure if im the only one here, but off late i find the frog population in the city has shot up major. I see them everywhere. I’m so irritated to drive on the roads because i fear i may run over some of them and kill them. But then there are so many its impossible to ensure you are driving without hurting some.

I don’t know if this is only the case in velachery, i was at my cousins place in T Nagar and i did find quite a lot of frogs in their garden and walkway too.

I found this fellow in the restroom and decided to take a couple of shots of him.

Froggy Reflection

I grabbed my macro lens and did shoot a lot of this guy. One more here….

Waiting for the Kiss...

Now does anybody have any stories of frogs turning into a princes instead of a prince??? I guess not :-(

What a cruel world for men this is… lol!

    Dilip, I think more frogs help in reducing insects – esp mosquitoes. But again, too many of them causes ecological imbalance huh?

    Regd. frog changing into a princess, maybe you should try kissing one to know if it does turn into a princess ;-) just kidding!!

    Yuk! Your house alone is not Chennai! If you keep your house dirty only frogs will come inside. Though I am near the canal in Adyar, not many frogs are there near my area and I guess you are one of those poor souls who have built, hired a place in the low lying parts (marshy) of velacheri. Frogs first then comes Snakes then comes rain and then comes disasters. Beware of the frog! And by the way brightly coloured frogs or mostly poisonous so kiss at your own risk!

    Ambika and Rahul Kanna, if you have nothing useful to say, then please don’t, rather than prove yourselves to be completely obnoxious by your comments.
    Also, I would like to say that some of the comments for Dilip’s previous articles were so shockingly bad that it was disgusting.
    I agree that he did not get off to a good start with his Zune blog, but he did apologise and try to make amends. I also suspect it is easy to be biased against someone who has been a bit brash in describing himself and also with his style of writing. However he is making an effort and I think hounding out someone like this is only going to put people off and reduce the quality of this site.

    I have seen this myself at Velachery. Frogs are more visible in Velachery not because of low-lying topography or any other factors suggested above. It is simply because of the higher vegetation coverage and older single houses and more open spaces. Whereas, if one goes further inside, say Mandaveli, frogs are seen only during rains, as all the land is concretized and there are less trees around.
