I’m not sure how big that rocket is, but if that frog was anywhere near that rocket, wouldn’t it need to be at least 4 feet long?
Probably flying toward the camera, I’d guess, from noting the position of the rocket barely off the pad.
I’d guess the frog had picked out a nice cool damp dark spot down in a deep hollow at the base of that big metal tree thingy.
(Is this the sort of launch pad where they spray water to keep the rocket exhaust from exploding the concrete?) Odds are the frog learned to fly just about the time he boiled.
Just local weather, not climate change….
