    Last year I posted this small guest who I had found among the orchids outside. Today, guess who's come to visit.... I must have frighten him/her/it because the color changed from a beautiful green to this reticulated gray/green pattern!

    This is last year's visit... I am assuming this is the same species.




    This is today's visit

    What a lovely little soul he/she is. I like both colours and patterning but the green stands out more. Thanks for taking the time to share him with us

    The second picture is an excellent example of camouflage. Its looking like lichen. Do you have a lot of lichen growing around?? You must be very lucky to have such a pure and clean climate.

    He's a gray tree frog. They can change color, much like an anole.
