I know the first thing that "normally" comes to mind when one thinks of Spring is the flowers..... but, I think of all the little critters that come along with them....... I found this little camouflaged frog on an okra stem........ SPRING IS HERE!!!!

    Only two more seasons to go until the "hunt"!!! Nice little pic, Maurie. [If Susan would bore down through the snow to the tundra, she would find lichens. Idaho is a perfect ecosystem for lichens. And trilobites!]

    Nice photo Maurie. I'm a huge fan of narrow depth of field and this shot certainly has it! I like the composition as well. Nice one.

    what a great shot! I like to hear the peeper frogs in the evening, ours are all leaf-green though, none with the 'character' that this one has....and no okra (whew). ;-)
