Hey Lady! I’m Trying To Blend In!

I have no idea what the formal scientific name for this little guy or gal is! But he’s been hanging out in the evenings near our back step. The first photo was snapped while he was on the back walk. The camera flash, coupled with my presence, sent him springing onto the grass. I followed. He decided to either freeze and take advantage of the incredibly accurate camouflage of his surroundings. Or he figured he’d do the pause on the red carpet thing until the paparazzi had their fill!

Very cool, we have them living under the deck, well until the concrete on the extension is poured...

Thanks for stopping by Roo!
Good luck with the new extension. Hopefully the frogs will find a pleasant location still within view!

Hi BB -
There certainly are advantages and trade offs to wherever we live. I enjoy all the interesting creatures that live in this area. The only time I have a problem is when they try to move indoors with us!!! Yikes!
