Pulling weeds is one way I like to relax, my moment of Zen, some would say. Every now and then I get a bonus. While reaching into a patch of day lilies, I discovered this little guy. Being so well-disguised by his coloring, I very nearly missed seeing him.
When I was bringing my plants inside due to a approaching tropical storm, I saw this little guy hanging out in my bromeliad plant! So I grabbed my camera and luckily he waited!
My granddaughter Kristin painted the gourd for her grandfather and to our surprise we found a new tenant had moved in.
I walked outside the other day and almost didn't notice this giant frog on the driveway. It sat there for quite a while and let me take several close up pictures.
Port Orchard, WA
I found this little guy on the handle of my grill after staining my patio. I thought it was a piece of tree bark, and then thought it was an unusual stone. I went to pick it up, and it was soft...ewww.
We went for a 5km hike through the Pretoria Zoo. Afterwards, we decided to spend some time at the zoo. I came across this little fellow and just couldn't resist snapping a photo.
These awesome little tree frogs are called "Spring Peepers" and have the prettiest little song. The male has been coming to my door for about a week in the evening, singing his little heart out looking for a mate. Within two days he had coaxed the female to join him for a lite meal courtesy of my porch light.
While reaching into my purse for the notepad I write grocery lists on, I screamed and yanked my hand back! I'd felt something wet and slimy! I looked down, and leaping away was an innocent little tree frog.
Froggy is a common frog. We found him in the pool, over and over, just about every morning. He likes to swim and drive toy cars.
Many of us mindlessly reach into our purses without looking each and every day. Well, on one such day during one such moment, I was casually rummaging my hand around in my purse. Suddenly, my fingers brushed across something wet and slimy.
While taking our dogs under a nearby bridge for some much-needed play time. My husband and I made a new friend; a little green frog! Who ever said it ain't easy being green.
This little guy comes out every day to enjoy the sun in my backyard.
Although Rodeo Frog really enjoys his job, he has been waiting many months for a well-deserved vacation. After a very busy year helping keep the jungle's bug population under control, he booked a "puddle jumper" over to Toad Hall, a very short hop.

The land our cabin sits on has a natural spring. My son loves to play with all of the fun critters the fresh spring water brings our way!
Just like little boys, LOL Cute as a "bug" too. GG Vi (07/15/2010)
Great opportunity to teach him to be gentle with helpless things that are so easily hurt and frightened.
Oh my gosh, this is the most adorable picture I've ever seen on Thrifty Fun! What a classic "all boy" shot! I love it! (07/16/2010)
Love the look on his precious face! (07/16/2010)
Beth, thank you for sharing. This a wonderful image!
I took herpetology as an undergraduate and my professor with 35 years of experience greatly encouraged the class to touch and hold specimens when we went on field trips. This is how you learn! Those experiences of holding the specimens has served me well now that I am in medical school.
Thanks again. :) (07/16/2010)
Here is a tree frog. They invite themselves over all the time from the pond across the road!

This was taken after a rainy day just outside our kitchen window. It landed on our outdoor "purchased" frog thermometer. I think this little guy is looking for his mom. So sweet!

And you had this outside your window. That's the ultimate in c-o-o-l. I've seen these in Nat'l Geographic and in calendars, but never taken by a real person (I know, that's beyond tacky, but I'm impressed). (06/05/2009)

Can't believe this photo. What a fantastic shot and imagery! I think you should enter it in some photo contest
in a museum or city! Keep it up. God bless you and His creation! : ) (06/06/2009)
My son Elijah and his pet bull frog Fred. I thought about the princess looking for a prince, but whoever thought about a prince looking for a princess.
