  1. Nice colorful pictures. I don’t know if we have tree frogs here or not. I don’t remember ever seeing one. I’ll have to check that out.

  4. Do you really have frogs on flowers? That’s like paradise! (or maybe you’re just messing with us)

    I can’t stop staring at the photo of the treefrog resting on the Black-eyed Susan. Be sure to click on the photo to see the largest version of it.
