A juvenile fogfrog, River

Having climbed to the top of the nearest stone-tree as the waters recede, during fugue the fogfrog dessicates into its cloud-form, a porous husk easily lifted away by the winter winds.

In this dormant state they ride the wind systems for months, until the clouds of Indrasummer gather.

Sensing the change in moisture, they resaturate just enough to glide down to the ground, announcing the start of the season with a wet plop as they land.
