09.11.2020 Flashback Frog Friday

One day while working in one of our small gardens in front of the house I looked up and saw this Gray Tree Frog-Hyla versicolor sitting on one of the branches of our Weigela shrub over my head.

It seemed totally unconcerned with my presence and had quite a relaxed demeanor. I keep looking for a return visit but that hasn’t occurred yet.

Have a nice weekend everyone and for my friends on the western part of the United States., good luck with diminished winds and increased rain to end the horrible fires out there. So much destruction.

  1. Your frog looks a lot like the branch it’s on. I’m not used to thinking of frogs in trees.

    I love your mellow tree frog, Steve. We have tree frogs here, but I have never seen one like that.

  6. The colours are quite subtle, but it still hold such great beauty in those markings. What a lovely dozy pose it has, too. Great shot, Steve!

    We have cute, green tree frogs, but I’ve never seen anything like this. He’s quite handsome!

    • The green tree frogs are gorgeous and almost enough to convince me to get in an aircraft to go to Costa Rica. He looks quiet but on a warm night can be very vocal and our woods are filled with tree frog music.

    I love finding these little frogs. Lately I’ve seen a couple on my front steps, which I’ll occasionally try to photograph (the frogs, not so much the steps 🙂). This one really does appear very relaxed, a great subject.
