Me And My Shadow


Hello, I’m a tiny little Gray Tree Frog. I’m about the size of the end of your thumb.

My normal color is gray, but I’ve turned myself green to match this leaf so I blend in with my surroundings.


Just sitting here in the sun enjoying the day and the peace and quiet.


Except for the crazy lady with the camera, it’s just me and my shadow.




Cattle, corn, wheat, beans, mud, snow, ice, and drought. Plenty of fresh air and quiet. Our life is sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes joyous, but never boring.

    I absolutely love these little guys. when I was in grade school I had one as a pet. Caught it, put it in a jar for 1 1/2 days, Mom said let it go it has to catch food. So I let it go in the rose bush. Then every day when I came home from school,called it and out it would come to see me. So so cute.

    Very nice! I didn’t know that there were tiny gray ones that can change their color! There are tiny ones here in western Oregon that are bright green. They make the cutest noise in the evenings…

    I wonder if these are the little creatures I hear “crocking” late at night when I walk the dogs? It does sound like a croak but it always baffled me because there is no water near by.
    Very dry here in Lexington. Hope all is well else where.
    I look really like this site and open it up most every day. What is the patio update?
