I found this little guy on one of Abba's leaves.
Cute little guy.

He hung around most of the day, and I have not seen him sence then. I have a better picture but I am still learning to use my camera, and I have to figure out how to make the pics small enough to fit on this forum and still show the detail. It is hard to see him on this one. I will keep working at it and hopefully get better!

Well, I'm glad it's not me that can't see it and it's the way you posted it! I thought something was wrong with my puter! :eek:

I'll be watching for a larger pic! :D

I found this one on an "Invincible" leaf. There are several hanging out in the flower pots around the house. At night they get on the windows waiting for bugs, I guess. The grandkids thought that was just great this weekend! They sure are cute...only about 1 1/4" long.

Thanks Char and the rest!!! I am getting the hang of it now. It took me forever to figure out how to zoom and crop and trim, good grief! I did not get to take the class I wanted, so I am learning the hard way! Stupid instruction book is nooooo help at all.

I had one in each of my wandering jew hanging baskets yesterday. They were really tiny ones...less than an inch. This isn't a very good pic, because he was above my head and I got a glare on him...he is really shiny.

I thought it was cute, though, as he seems to be saying "you can't see me cuz of my camoflauge." Yeah...it doesn't work as well on purple leaves... :D

Sad report... :(

I left my coffee sitting on the patio table this morning while I went about "surveying the land." I came back, and after I took a sip, I noticed a leaf had fallen in my coffee....

Oh,no! It's not a leaf! It's a baby frog!!!!! Oh, no! Too late...he didn't make it! The coffee was really hot. I was so sad...he was only about 1/2" long.... :( :( :cry:
