A Tiny Green Frog

Sometimes the smallest things are the biggest delight for me. When Gary and I were putting out the awning of our travel trailer we discovered a tiny green frog was hiding in the mechanism. Maybe he was trapped in there; I don't know. He was about an inch long; I think his eyes were squinting in the bright sunlight. I didn't want him to be crushed when we put the awning back up so I tried to coax him out of his hiding place. Finally I got him out and he jumped to the ground. We looked and looked but he was perfectly camouflaged in the lawn and we didn't seem him again. This post is part of Mud Colony's what's happening in the studio. Thanks for reading and for all  your comments.


  1. No, no - that is not a small thing. Huge green happiness - albeit in a small green body. And I do love the photo.

  2. That's a sweet photo! Does he puff up and make lots of noise?

    We have little frogs that you would swear are at least 5" long by the noise they make!

  3. 'Tis the tree frog season here. Yours mistook the awning for a crook of a tree.

  4. What a cute little thing! Glad you save its life!

  5. What a sweet thing! I miss green frogs. We had lots in japan, but not here in UK! It's a lovely photo, Linda!

  6. Oh, what a cutie ! Really lovely story, thank you :)

  7. What a cutie. Must of been his winter residence

  8. Hi Elephant's Child, thanks, small in size but not good greeness.

    Hi Suzi, thanks, not sure he puffs up or if he makes lots of noise but he has a new home here. I see how animals and insects can be transported unknowingly.

    Hi Joanne, thanks, sweet little guy.

    Hi Gigi, thanks, I had a terrible time getting him out of there he was frightened.

    Hi Midori, thanks, isn't his face unique up close.

    Hi Llona Jo, thanks, so glad we noticed him before he got squished.

    Hi Michele, thanks, he was a beautiful green, would love a glaze that color.

    Hi Rhonda, thanks, we had a bunch of rain recently, not sure how he got in there.

    Hi Ms Sparrow, thanks, I guess it pays to be observant, never know what is lurking here and there.

  9. What a cutie...I am sure he was grateful not to get smushed. I have been catching up on your blog. Your camper looks like it will be comfortable...I still can not imagine being able to just get up and go...I think you will love it and hope you have a grand adventure.

    thanks for blogging on yr journey !!
