Hiding in Plain Sight

We went to Glen’s mothers house yesterday evening and this fella was sitting on her front porch light.  Guess he was waiting for night to fall so he could partake in bugstravaganza.

Sticky Feet

Cute little tree frog that decided our living room window was the perfect place to hunt for bugs.


Tiny Toad

This little toad was so cute, but he didn’t want to have anything to do with posing for a picture.


Smart Toad

I got home from the gym the other evening and this big fat fella had parked himself under the motion light by the garage door.



Froggy Went A Courtin

This guy was in the garden, just hanging out.  He was gorgeous, healthy and big.  I’m not sure if this is a leopard or a pickerel frog.  Either way he was good company while we were out picking tomatoes.


Green Friend


I was wondering if our little green friend was going to show up this year.  He decided hanging out on the grill was the safest place to be to catch bugs.



You know the tadpoles are huge when you are standing on a bridge looking over into the murky water about 20 feet below and can see them.

Froggy Went A-Courtin

I was up late watching “Shaun of the Dead” the other night when Lilly started twittering.  She does that when she sees something she wants to chase and kill, like a moth or a bird.  I looked at the window to see what she was looking at, and lo and behold, there was a cute little tree frog.  It has a good gig going on eating the bugs that our living room light attracts.




Late Night Visitor

I am amazed this little toad didn’t get squished by Lucy when she came thundering up to the front door to be let back in the house.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
