Frog Friday

Frog Friday

Most Fridays Steve Gingold (click here for this weeks) has what he calls Frog Friday. I thought one of my neighbors would fit right in, this is my small contribution to Steve’s ongoing project.

===================================

It gets loud in my back yard this time of year. By this time I know where to look for a few photographs.

These were taken in the arbor behind my house. Right now it’s very thick with hanging vines and much of it hidden behind giant ‘Elephant Ear’ plants.

However, on the large plant stems there is usually at least one Green Tree Frog sleeping the day away.

Note; I find it a bit creepy to stick my head in the arbor (you really don't want to know) which limits my options for composition and angles. Pretty much I will stick the lens between some leaves, try to focus, and take some shots.

  1. I love these bright green tiny tree frogs —saw one like this in my parts of the Canadian prairies — a rarity, they are well camouflaged and we don’t usually see them.

    1. They don’t like northern weather. Up north the summer sounds were crickets and Katydids. Down here it’s the tree frogs. I hear some now, mid morning, because it’s hot and very humid. They love that.

    2. We were picking berries and my mom was off in a wooded area, and suddenly exclaimed about something squishy on a branch, turned out it was a tiny green and yellow tree frog, and the frog unlike us was quite unperturbed by the experience, it didn’t budge! 😂
