Video: During a downpour in the forests near Robert Frost Farm, photographer Michael N. Sutton took some footage of bullfrogs in a pond. At normal speeds, they’d probably look no different than any other frogs. But filmed in HD at 1000 frames per second, they suddenly become regal, stately. And oh so dramatic.

And then they start jumping around. Bullfrogs are ponderous looking as-is, but when you pace their movements down to slo-mo speeds, they really start to look strange. Almost hypnotic.
