Way back in May a friend and I went to the famous Frog Jumping Fair in Angel’s Camp, California.
The frogs need a bit of coaxing.
The judge encourages the contestants to “give em a little tickle on the bum.”

A lot of the time the frogs would jump backwards toward the shade and the pond they were so rudely pulled out of to come be the star of the show!

I didn’t do too well shooting the frogs in the air. I wasn’t as skilled as I would like to be anticipating where they would jump… when they did jump. I hope I get the opportunity to go again. It’s silly, and a lot of fun to watch.
