    Had this thing been lined up due N/S, I may have missed it. BTW, what the heck is this thing?

    Looks like it might be a tree frog. They can climb like crazy. :)

    These are young Pacific Tree Frogs we hatched from pollywogs. They live in our septic tank.

    Tree frog . . . I love them. My wife hates them . . . mostly because they've been breeding in our swimming pool this year after we opted to not open it up and about every evening they start calling to each other in their loud, shrill voices.

    I was telling the bass player about it at a gig last night and he turned and asked his wife, "Don't we have about six of those in our pool right now?". ;lol

    Oh yeah... the little suckers really do get rowdy.;) Their sound is way out of porportion to their size.

    Tree frogs remember where they were spawned.

    The adults will return to the same place next season to spawn more wogs.

    These little guys are in various stages of camo. They're not on the Hyacinth all the time, so they likely won't bother turning all green.

    This year has been so wet, I have more tiny tree frogs than grasshoppers. Very weird year for bugs and critters in this part of the country.

    We also got pretty good rain this year although technically it's still a drought. Nature is never out of balance because it constantly adapts to changing conditions. About 10 years ago it rained 66 inches in the canyon and the frogs were Biblical! ;lol
