It’s not easy being green, or so they say. I was focusing on some water lilies in CT when I noticed a frog lounging near a lily pad; it wasn’t the first that I’d seen, but it was the only one that allowed me within arms reach. If you look closely, you’ll notice that there’s a big tadpole resting on the pad’s stem. It seemed like such a peaceful scene. Until mere moments after I snapped this photo, the frog turned and ate the tadpole (which I also photographed, but left out of this thread on account of the squeemishness of my readers). Ahh, the circle of life.
The following day, I found myself in Chinatown in New York City. As I approached a fish market, with a wide variety of fresh and dried fish spilling out onto the sidewalk, I noticed a large, grey plastic garbage can getting an unusual amount of attention from a boy who was just tall enough to see over its rim. As I approached the can, I noticed the tag inside: $3.79/lb. Ahh, the beauty of the circle of life (less the cannibalistic infanticide, this time).
