I think Sarah is spot on, Dave.
And this post is a bit serendipitous for me. I have been trying to write a poem about red-legged frogs (yesterday, in fact) — yet it was going off in the direction of a rant rather than doing what I hoped to do. (It’s hard not to rant about some things. What separates art from rant?)
Thanks for the challenge. And encouragement, of a sort. One could make this a life’s work. Unfortunately.
I do hope Clive does a bestiary, they are compelling.
