September 17, 2008: Bullfrog vs Sparrow

Either the sparrow doesn't know the frog is there, or doesn't know the danger.



The bird seems very much unconcerned. Or maybe it figures things out at the last moment...



...and moves to a higher perch, but it's not far enough away. The frog leaps,



And faster than a photographer, he has the bird and drags it to its death.



Don't chew with your mouth open! It's rude.



Burrrp oh pardon me.

I wonder if sparrow feathers do to frogs what corn does to me?


Amazing sequence.

I didn't know frogs eat birds.

Was the photographer anticipating this, or did he just get lucky?

seen similar

I haven't seen that happen, but I did see a snapping turtle grab a pretty large duck and pull it under the water once. That was cool.

fish will eat bugs that sit on the surface of the water. Sharks eat birds that are floating around in the water.

That frog was hungry!

Its things like this that make me glad humans have opposable thumbs and can use tools. Like BBQ grilles.

And can eat frog legs. Instead of the other way around.

Eeeeeuw That's like a pelican eating pigeons.

I heard somewhere that if frogs were the size if cows humans would've never walked the earth.

Yeah, I thought Colonel Sanders (and co.) used a bigger bird than that...
