    I just had my frog book out trying to figure out the 1000's of tadpols I have in my fountain. You little friend looks to be a Bronze Frog. He is a cutie.

    Actually he is a Cuban Tree Frog, they have more or less taken over the tree frog population here in Florida. But he is still a cutie.

    Oh, he is so cute. His friend must be shy.

    We had the windows open the other night and the attic fan pulling in the unusually cool night air and the light over the sink was on. This caused a huge collection of summer insects to gather around that window and on the screen. I saw a large 'bug' and went to take a closer look and it was a tree frog! He was having a feast! He would grab a little moth and then move very slowly and grab another one. I went to get my camera and I guess he got full for when I returned, he was already gone.

    Cheers,
    BD

    Looks like he's enjoying the bask on the shriveled p-bulb, or he's just trying to find his friend in a nice game of hide-n-seek.
