Let me hibernate

111127 P1480902I was cleaning out stones which had fallen into the frog pools when I came to this stone.  I lifted the flap of pool liner which was covering the stone and saw . . .

111127 P1480905. . . a frog perched on the stone attempting to move into hibernation.  Well I decided that stone could stay right where it was.  Then I noticed a second frog in the water behind this same stone.  He, too, looked very black.

As I took these photographs, the frog opened his eyes as if to say, “Okay, that’s enough.  I’m ready to hibernate.  Please cover me back up and go away.”
