Cute Little Frogs







While the children were mowing the lawn (again) yesterday, they came across three little green tree frogs on the grass. They are delighted to rescue and relocate them to a safe spot in the garden. We had seen some similar ones at church the day before too.

Yesterday Master J found one much smaller, about the size of his finger nail while waiting for his school bus.





Our tadpoles are being eagerly watched and fed with hopes they will soon become little green tree frogs too and not ugly brown ones which also live in the area.




This morning I spotted this "shadow" on a leaf this little cutie below was the cause.







We all quite like these little green frogs, which is a good thing as we may be seeing many more in the near future!

What delightful frog pictures!

About your question: yes, traditional wooden houses are painted in that red colour, which once upon a time, was made out of iron ore...

I had to rescue a small brown one from the kitties this week - we don't see any really here so I relocated it well away :-)

I remember every spring, looking in ponds and puddles for any signs of the tadpoles...we too would collect them and watch them grow...it was so exciting to see their legs form and then, when they were ready, release them down by the river in our backyard. And hearing the night time croaking in the summer...we knew our 'babies' were out there all grown up. Probably one of my first introductions from nature to the cycle of motherhood. Your rescue rangers are doing a fabulous job! And the shadow shot is too cute!

much oooing and ahhhing whilst viewing you photos this morning, I so love little frogs in the garden.

I came home late one evening recently to find a little brown (not really so ugly) one perched on the decorative moulding of my front door! such a pleasant surprise. Until then we had only heard him. it's lovely to know our gardens are healthy enough for these little beauties to survive in.

Have a beautiful day.
Take care
Leanne

Very cute frogs, especially the one curled up on the leaf. Looks like a pet. :)

Tim Rice said...

Beautiful green frogs! God has created many wonderful creatures. Love the background music and sounds.

Deanne said...

Wow these are so cute, we have waited for tadpoles to turn into frogs before - it takes ages!

Madge Bloom said...

Oh my gosh..those are so precious! Love that second to last close up!

Kateri said...

Those are so cute. Quite different from our tree frogs, but so adorable non the less.

el-mundo-en-colores said...

yayks, I couldn't touch a frog :D

Pieces of Sunshine said...

I'm not so keen on touching them either, but most our children don't mind, especially the little frogs.

MarieHarmony said...

Your frogs make me smile....They remind me of childhood.
It's not in a busy city that I can see them now, so I enjoyed a lot your lovely photos.
Have a lovely day!

Ruby said...
