waterbomb frog

old pond —
a frog jumps in
sound of water

— Matsuo Basho

When I run out of origami ideas, practice folding or simply kill time, I usually go back to the simple classic models and make some modifications in the in the hope of coming up with a new model. Once, I experimented with the traditional flapping bird and ended up with a horse. The frog model above is a simple variation of the century-old waterbomb, hence, the title.
