giants three

Have you ever seen something so unlikely that your mind was not sure how to file the image.
Instead, you experienced that brief moment of suspended thought.
My daughter saw it first and sounded the alarm.
A giant frog.
There it sat, as still as a lawn ornament upon a log at the edge of the pond.
I say lawn ornament because that is what my startled mind at first declared it saw.
Such an impossible size.
And its color was so like weathered metal; only the glistening eye was bright with life. 
It had a neighbor.
A second super-frog.
"Bonk, Gonk."
And a third, its body partially submerged.
A trio.
Giants three.
Pavarotti and friends.
