A frog in the pool

I found another frog in the pool today.  This is by far the largest frog I've seen around here.  He's half the size of Charlie's head!  Frogs are hard to catch in the pool because they can swim a whole lot faster than I can push the net through the water.  I end up having to chase them around a bit before I can sneak up on them.  We have plenty of toads around here, but I'm always surprised when I find a frog.  It's a long way from here to the creek.  I think the frogs get washed down the ditch in front of the house during heavy rains and then find their way to the swimming pool.  Whenever I find one I scoop it up and put it in my neighbor's backyard pond.
