The full moon this week seemed to bring out all the creatures, great and small. After a session of taking moon shots in the front yard, I turned to go back inside and noticed a strange, dark shadow on top of our gate. When I saw it move a few inches I knew right away it was something I have not seen in a long while.
So, what else could I do but make my way over-slowly-and introduce myself-and my Nikon!
A little shy…
this handsome guy.
But curious you see,
as I was about he.
“Okay you can take a shot or two,
if you keep some distance between me and you.”
(thank God for my zoom)
Pretty soon he was looking bored
while I was begging for just one more
“If you won’t go away.”
he seemed to say.
“Perhaps my ‘best side..'”
“Please just one more!” I cried.
“Ahhh..very well then, my intrusive friend.”
“Then I must be off as day finds its end.”
Good night sweet prince inside the beast……..
My husband looked it up. This is a Cuban tree frog. They are supposedly pests, wreaking havoc by clogging pipes. I just find it one more wonderful piece of the natural world around me.
