This little frog was clinging to the netting on our big 10 X 20 awning. I think there must be many flies and bugs to fill him up, and then some, because there is always a very large garter snake close by too. He probably enjoys a few big slugs in between snacks of bugs and frogs.
Here are the Queen Elizabeth roses ( see those two pathetic pink blooms?) that I need to prune back but restrain myself because they are home to.....
...these frogs! Click onto this picture and it will enlarge and show you two little green frogs clinging to each other and this rose.Here is another picture of the three frogs...I wrote an earlier post showing these three frogs clinging to one rose. That rose dropped its' bottom petal leaving only 2 frogs clinging to it, but they all seem to stay together, even if it means they dwell on neighboring roses. I have been checking these frogs on and off for several days and they are always there on the bush, close together. Amazing! To think they live on a rose, a bloom that is so temporary...and yet , as I observe the bush, the blooms seem to attract bees, flies, spiders, and frogs. So apparently there is a whole 'nother world here and the food chain in action is demonstrated by the hour....wonder where the little frogs will be living tomorrow?
There are always many frogs here on Cedar Pond, but this year there seem to be so many more. It seems we are heading into a Froggy Fall, wonder what that says about the coming Autumn and Winter?
