This is the smallest Tree Frog I’ve ever seen, no bigger than my pinky fingernail. I’m calling him a juvenile, but have no idea how old he might be, or how he came to be on our patio.
Ted spotted him first, and thought it was the head of a juvenile Carolina Anole peaking up over the leaf.
There was a young Anole patrolling this Curcumin plant and the frog soon disappeared into the dense middle and I wondered if they were aware of each other.
A big leaf pierced its neighbor making a nice pocket for a Tree Frog to settle for a nap.
After not finding a Tree Frog in the Calla Lilies around the pond I spotted this one right at my eye level on a dried stalk from last year’s hibiscus.
The Calla Lily was past its prime, but it still made a cozy spot for a tree frog early this morning.
I’ve been keeping my eye out for Tree Frogs around the swamp now that we’ve had some warmer days.
On Thursday I spotted one tucked into a palm frond soaking up the afternoon sun.
Tree Frogs seem to be hanging around everywhere this month, including reeds in the swamp.
This pair found a reed to their liking at the edge of the swamp for a nap.
Neither one showed any acknowledgement of my presence.
This is my first post created from scratch using the Block Editor. It seems tedious with a lot of extra steps compared to my usual process of adding a few images then typing a sentence or two in between.

I passed by a number of creatures moving about in the greenery on a recent walk. First a Carolina Anole balancing on a frond.
Then a grasshopper checking out a dried cattail reed.
And a Tree Frog, just hanging on.
Surprising to me in these 90+ degree F days (32 C) we’ve been having the tree frogs are out in the sun.
Do frogs yawn?
Their camouflage is pretty good.
… a Tree Frog and a Grasshopper, and a lot of green.
The Tree Frog appeared to spy me, too, but he didn’t much care about me or the grasshopper.
The grasshopper ignored us both, too.
