Is it a bird? Is it a frog?

Some creature was making an extremely peculiar noise up by the pond this morning. Any ideas what it might be?

The Queen Anne's Lace (Daucus carota) flowers are opening up. I really like the delicate basket-work tracery of the green bracts underneath the flower heads.

That is a gorgeous shot of the Queen Anne's Lace, a flower I dearly love.

Wish I could help you with that peculiar noise-maker. Can't wait to find out if someone else knows...

Had to come back to reassure you that we just have the two tiny ripe tomatoes. YOURS will come on fast and furious. And since you have a greenhouse, you'll be enjoying yours long after mine are just sauce and chutney and...

I know, I've just got to be patient! I haven't bought any fresh tomatoes for weeks, so my anticipation is reaching fever-pitch. I'm sure I'll be sick of having to process them in a month or two (I have rather a lot of plants...)!

That's a perfect angle to shoot a picture of Queen Anne's lace. It makes the more lovely.

I think it is a bird.....am I right?

Mo - I've no idea! But I think you might be right, as it stopped when I got closer and so might have flown off. It was a very weird noise.
