I couldn't believe my eyes this afternoon to see this little Green Tree Frog nestled inside
the Apache Day Lily flower....We have been seeing these tiny guys in the woods for the first
time in several years... Just the day before our first sighting this summer my husband had mentioned it had been quite awhile since we've seen the Green Tree Frogs in our area ..All of sudden they are showing up all over the place.

I just told my husband a few days ago that the Apache Days Lily is such a pretty red flower
in our garden but I never see butterflies or bees pollinating it ... However, wasn't expecting to see the tree frog show up there today curled up in the petals.....I only saw it there briefly to photograph as a big gust of wind starting blowing the flower back and forth on its stem and he jumped off...I am not sure what led me over to look at these flowers today but glad I did before the wind started blowing as I would have missed this photo opportunity if I had waited a minute longer. Timing is everything in photography..

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!!!

What a nice surprise ...Thank you Heather Mellon for nominating my little tree frog on 9/3/2019!!!

    I love the green against the red! That guy is adorable and I wish I could share my frogs crickets and worms with him but it looks like from his belly he is finding quite a few snacks on his own!
