They are out now...the tree frogs that hang out on and near our house. It is usually around Memorial Day when we see them for the first time each spring and they were right on schedule again this year.
I think it is amazing that some of the tree frogs we have are bright green and some are more brown and some are kind of grey. I wonder if they change colors or if their coloration is like humans different colored hair. Or are they different breeds. Anybody know?
We have only been seeing tree frogs in our area for about 10 years. I don't know why we all of a sudden had so many show up but they are quite fascinating. They really like to sit on the windows at night to catch bugs, especially on windows where we have room lights on. There are always lots of bugs hitting the windows being drawn to the light so it makes sense the frogs would be there too. We have seen them catch the bugs and eat them...one ate a lightening bug and then spit it out. It must have not tasted too good. It doesn't seem to bother them that we are just on the other side of the glass watching.
This morning I woke up early, 5:30 am, and needed to get a drink of water and then was going to settle into my recliner and read a while until John woke up. As I was passing the kitchen window I caught a movement that startled me and turned and looked and there was a pretty large tree frog in the middle of the window and it was walking towards the top. Grabbed my camera and got these shots if it. (The grid is the screen on the inside of the windows.) Check out their little toes where they have the sticky pads or what ever helps them stick to the sides of walls/windows.
Have a great week….I need to do some more work outside and hope to do that in the mornings and maybe I will have time for some stitching in the afternoons.
