Yesterday my husband asked me on our walk in the woods if I saw what he did and I said " what do you see?"...He said look around, which I did and finally Eureka I saw the two tiny tree frogs who were the same color as the leaf they were huddled together in...First I shot them from behind but there was too much in the way to see the caterpillar on the other side. Consequently, I waded through some deep weeds to get to the front of them with the Monarch caterpillar and also got two milkweed pods in center of the picture.

Ironically just the day before I shot this picture we were talking about frogs and my husband remarked how we had not seen frogs in a number of years, not even the little green Tree frog ....then two showed up yesterday....How funny is that? I will show them from on a closer shot from behind in the next photo.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!!!

    wow! to get both species is amazing. My goodness I think it is fantastic that you have so many different critters on your property. It makes life a little better doesn't it?

    Thank you Teresa....I love the outdoors and nature photography is my favorite to do where I feel at peace with the beauty of the earth...It is really my solitude!

    The green foliage alone is beautiful and very striking.. but the caterpillar and tree frogs just take this to another level!! A wonderful find and capture!
