Flat Frogs : The Return !

If you search a little bit, you will be able to find two other earlier posts in these pages depicting the glories and tragedies of flattened out frogs, two dimensional frogs. . . frogs whose lives were cut short by a rolling round ring of rubber attached to a steel wheel attached to an axel connected to a drivetrain and motor controlled by a maniacal human driver wired out on caffeine, nicotine, codeine, ectasy, amphetamines, mescaline, benzedrine, alcohol, you name it, who came barrelling down the road oblivious to any and all amphibians who might have been out for a frolic in the public roadway, and smack, in a fraction of a second, a flat frog. Well, watch out if you are driving behind me. . . I brake for frogs ! And I brake even harder for flat frogs. . . have camera, will travel in search of amphibian roadkill. Too darn many of us humans and our automobiles, too few frogs for my liking. . . and too many flat frogs. . . who will not reproduce.

This flat frog looks like a fossil... it also, somehow, brings to mind the aftermath of the Vesuvius' eruption on Pompeii's inhabitants.
Sad and fascinating...
