Today the weather was overcast and threatening rain. Not a good day for snapshots of flora, but excellent conditions for sneaking up on fauna. 😎 Case in point:
I checked the Florida Frog and Toad Image Index in hopes of identifying our amphibian friend, but the best I can tell you is what it’s not! It’s definately NOT the Cuban Tree Frog, an invasive species I see constantly, hiding in the tanks of my tillandsias and bromeliads.
I waited and watched for a bit, to see where he’d venture next:
In short order, he rounded the tree to the orchid pots:
And decided to take a stretch:
Muscles warmed up, he peeked over the edge:
And then he was gone!!
I like to think he went off in pursuit of a friend….perhaps visiting the turtle who lives in our yard, or the moles who raise tunnels in my gardens each night.
A real life Wind in the Willows is such a pleasant thought on a grey and showery day! 🙂
Until next time………….
