In the garden at a friend's house, Mother of the Child noticed some frogs living in the flowers. So she took the smaller digital camera (which actually does better macro work than the big DSLR) and snapped some very cool frog photos.

I love the little green frogs, I have them in my yard too, and they love to hang out by the porchlights for "fast food" at night.

When you said 'frogs living in the flowers' I didn't think they were quite so tiny. Wow.

Wonderful. You know, you have so many wonderful photos you could offer free wallpapers at your site, theme-tied into your writing if you so desire.

Thank you. I suppose I'm edging in that direction with the 'Moment of Zen' series.

Wow! Nature in action. Also an interesting subject. The photos made me do a little research. There are ecological benefits to frogs in gardens. There are frogs that hold flowers. But I couldn't find any information about these little guys that MotC found. I may have to investigate further....

They look like tree-frogs...flower-frogs? My favorite is the next-to-last, with the pink flowers. The final pic looks like something Anne Geddes would take, if she were into frogs rather than babies. Very cool!

Thank you for these. They led to another story about the twins in The Big Blue Tent, which is here, if you or the photographer would like to look.
