Hop He Got Home OK

 I was just driving along Trafalgar Avenue this evening when I spotted something small hopping across the road in front of me. Luckily I was going fairly slowly so I was able to stop the car before hitting it and reverse a bit. Seemingly caught in the headlights it didn’t move and allowed me to get close enough to take these pictures. (After which I gently encouraged him to finish his journey across the road and back to the grass.)

It’s nice to see some true wildlife from time to time and I don’t think I’ve seen a frog outside of a zoo since I was a littleun. I hope people take care driving around, especially in places like Trafalgar Avenue and Green Lane where there is more likely to be some diverse wildlife because of the water running nearby.
