Managed to catch another huge bullfrog (ushigaeru ) on the way home last night. It seemed to be dazzled by my headlights and wasn’t too difficult to catch. I showed it to the kids and then took it to a rice paddy in the morning to release it. Took some pictures first and had to keep grabbing it when it tried to escape. Finally I put it in the rice paddy water and only managed to get one photo before it took off in giant leaps through the field!
