Guess who’s coming to dinner? It’s a Pacific tree frog looking for an easy snack. Yesterday I was in the garden, still trying to catch a leafcutter in the act of cutting, when I decided to look for petal pieces in the pollinator housing. The housing is nearly full already, but I came face to face with this little guy. Cute huh? I wonder, though, how many pollinators he can eat in a day.
Pacific tree frogs make an incredibly loud sound for their size, and when they all get going at once, it is deafening. They are tiny. In the bottom photo you can it’s only about two drinking straws wide. I’ve heard they are the species that is most often recorded for background sounds when creepy nighttime noises are needed in the movies.
Anyway, I left him there. I like frogs almost as much as bees, so he (or she) gets to stay.
