Catching Moisture - Frog
With rain clouds approaching, a frog reaches out to a dragonfly, intent on a meal. Frogs are associated with the rainy season as desert frogs (Scaphiopus couchii) hibernate waiting for the summer rain. The frogs croaking their mating call as they rise with the rain is also a reminder of the return of life-giving moisture to a dry desert.
