Tiny Wonders

Perhaps if I was not so busy with my grandchildren I could identify for you more accurately these little toads which live on my banister down that goes down to the patio.  They hide under the huge leaves of the moonflower, which has an exotic fragrance that attracts all kinds of bugs...they somehow know this, even though a moonflower is an exotic tropical plant that only grows because I buy the seeds.


Both are smaller than my fingernail.  One is probably a male and one a female.  I have no time to research and ind out which one, but although they hang in proximity...they do not hang out together!  They are so beautiful.

PS..as one of my readers comments below, they are frogs and not toads.  "Bird voiced tree frogs."  I do know they live in trees and also patio umbrellas ;-).  Please click on the photo for a larger view.

Tabor, these look like juvenile bird voiced tree frogs rather than toads, and they're lovely!

People often do not see the beauty in reptiles, but I find them fascinating.

They are so cute! We have so many tiny little baby toads and frogs up at the cabin. The kids LOVE catching them. They are SO SMALL!

That first one seems to have such a serene smile on its face. They are indeed beautiful little gems.

They are cute little dudes. It's amazing how little tiny frogs can make such big noises.

You should not have to buy any more moonflower seeds. They should re-seed nicely.

Mine do, but I am careless and almost lost them. I have them thriving in three different places in my yard, now.

Pictures, please. :)
