    Default Meet A Visitor

    So I was out watering the cymbidiums and this guy/gal greeted me and asked how my day was going and I replied, "The sun is shining and the temperature is very pleasant and all is well." I asked if I might shoot some pics and he replied, "Makeup...makeup....makeup!"

    What a wonderful visitor! Beautiful photography too, Howard! I especially love the second and final photos. Those should be in a calendar or on a post card or something.

    Cheers,

    My guess would be Hyla versicolor or chrysoscelis.

    Actually I don't but will have to check around and see if I can find someone who does. I don't think I've seen a tree frog like that before.

    Excellant pics, Howard!
