Frog on Tap

While on a walk in a remote area of La Gomera recently we wanted to drink from one of the many springs and wells you find scattered all over the island. This one even has  a tap at the ideal height provided  for your convenience. Hand stretched out to press the tap and the other already cupped to receive the water, there was an outcry: ''Oh, how sweet''. It wasn't the water, as I'd expected that caused this shout, but a baby tree frog stoically 'defending' his throne. Needless to say that we didn't drink there, but a bit further on there was cold clean water trickling down a rock face for our refreshment.
