Countryside satire, showing a father and son picnicking on a vast meat pie on marshy land, both gazing anxiously at a large frog which intrudes upon the scene, the son's plate falling from his knee in his alarm; the son in a tightly buttoned blue costume with cap and ruff, the father with a handkerchief over his head and under the shade of an umbrella, a swarm of flies buzzing above their heads.
