There's a frog on my dahlia

Thought you might like to see a couple of pictures of Sir Alfred Ramsey(plus frog). I was heading out to take pictures and this little fellow was just hanging out-it must have been quite a journey for him. He let me take numerous pictures and even turned from time to time to show me his better side.

very nice! Is it a very small toad, protecting your Dahlias, looking out for bugs to eat?
Where are you located?

Your frog has exceptional taste in dahlias. What a gorgeous triumph of gardening for you, and of expedition climbing for him!

Thanks for the replies; I am in Michigan. I looked it up on the MI dept of natural resources site and it is a gray tree frog. they can change color to gray, green, or brown, according to environment or activity. Looks like pink was way to difficult! here's a pic

If you mean the dahlia picture, go right ahead, I'm glad you liked it. The frog by itself is off from the MI DNR site.

I guess your lil gray tree frog turned green with envy, eh (ouch sorry for the pun). No, simply a magnificent dahlia and all the more magnificent for it's visitor.
