Tiny friends

These were my new friends of the day. The caterpillar was on a piece of ball moss I picked up while playing disc golf. Frogger friend was in the backyard creek (where I was looking for cool stuff). Pretty sure it's a Blanchard's Cricket Frog- he was about the size of my thumbnail, the 'pillar guy is pinky nail size. Tiny guys!

Also, finally updated my website:  http://jillwussowphotography.com/ if you're bored with the Superbowl (yawn...!) and feel like checking it out! Macro Monday Our World Tuesday Weekly Top Shot

I can't imagine a frog that small, almost like a pocket pet. Great macros.

Finding the toad was a keen eye as he is really very camouflaged

Wow, that frog is tiny!!! Great photos.

Do you know what the caterpillar is? I find field guides less useful for caterpillars than anything else. Many just assume you only want to know what the imago looks like!

Beautiful shots. The caterpillar is cute, the frog not so cute.
