We were probably the last batch that performed dissection on toads as part of the high-school zoology curriculum. Years down the line, I do not remember much of the amphibian internal physiology, but this I do - the scene at the end of the class could well be described by Toad News as another despicable terrorist attack. Bits and pieces strewn everywhere, with no way of knowing which was whose. It was a yucky business. Curiosity had most comprehensively killed the toad.

This frog looks curious, but is very safe though. It stays in a specially made pond in the Schoering-Hoffman wildlife preserve.

a fresh start

I found a light, and it was perfect, but it was just a flame being at its brightest before going out.

Now to investigate some of those bokeh blobs on the the horizon.
And some beyond.
Its all glow-worms and stars, and no perspective to tell apart .Wonder which of them is true ?
