I saw this thing on the sidewalk yesterday. I was about to step over it thinking it was just another piece of lifeless debris when I realized it was not an ordinary piece of lifeless debris, but an ex-frog, a tiny dried-up lifeless frog. It was being ignored even by the ants. I couldn't have ignored it. So I photographed it. My finger provides a scale.
The closest pond was across the street about 50 m away. It presumably came from there. But how?
Surprisingly, today, about a day later, it was still at the same spot. It was obviously not yet ready to return to life.
