We need another

What the hell, I already posted twice today, and cleaned out the ‘To be sorted’ folder (long overdue) – then I take out the compost and spot another couple of images to put back into it. So what’s one more post in a day, between us?

The green treefrog (Hyla cinerea) that I spotted hanging out in the ant trap on one of our hummingbird feeders seems to have made this a regular haunt, and while it would normally be out hunting at this time of night (it’s 11:34 PM,) it’s been raining all day long, courtesy of a hurricane I think, and for some reason treefrogs don’t like being out in the rain. So here it sits, waiting.

By day, it’s normally hunkered down in there, barely visible through the filthy plastic, and I’ve noted its presence several days in a row now. But the Copes grey treefrogs (Hyla chrysoscelis) have been a lot more scarce, and I haven’t seen a full adult for a while now. Until tonight.

Two meters away on a downspout under the same roof overhang, a Copes grey also sits under cover away from the steady downpour, somehow not looking all that patient. To me, anyway – you know us experienced nature photographers can read the animals like a book.

[Sigh] And now I have to go sort another six images. Work work work…
