Kermit

June 2, 2010

We had a neighbor literally drop by tonight!

What a cutie! He’s a Gray Tree Frog. These froggies are found in our area and are pretty cool because they can camouflage themselves a little like chameleons (they’re slower though).

Mr. Froggie almost got fried tonight because he decided to take up residence on the underside of our grill. He started falling out when K turned on the grill.  We have no idea how he made it onto our deck since the trees don’t reach all the way to it.  He must have taken a big ol’ leap of faith and completely missed a tree.

They have a really pretty yellow under their legs (as seen here and here), but I wasn’t able to capture it because Kermit here didn’t like posing for us.  Finally, K took him back down to the rocks in the preserve below us. He’d never make it back stuck up on our deck.

Hopefully he’s learned something, because I’m thinking he’s a little slow.  I hope he climbs another tree soon before he gets eaten!

    Poor Guy! I hope he appreciated not becoming part of dinner. He’s cute :-)
