Thanks! I wouldn't really call that glass insulator "modern". You can find them around as antiques, but I don't think they have used them for power transmission for a long time.
I remember when we were kids you could still find them on fallen-down utility poles along railroad tracks, but then people started to collect them and now you can only find them in an antiques shop.
That is the frog's favorite place to bask. He's always there.
