Garden Critters

As much as I love taking pictures of my hostas, I also love taking pictures of the critters that take shelter in them. I think I counted 10 tree frogs on my Sum of All (that is also sporting/reverting). We have a TON of tree frogs this year!!!

Seeing so many tree frogs on your hosta puts it in perspective as to how small they are. Cuties!

I showed my rat on a hosta earlier, but here's a critter of sorts, an insect critter. It's not on a hosta, but there is one nearby. ;-)

Here's a lady beetle (ladybug, as we call them) doing a balancing act on some Coreopsis, Zagreb.

They are adorable! I've never seen those where I live (southwestern Ontario - I wonder if we even have them here...will have to look it up). But we have an abundance of toads this year, I'm tripping over them constantly in the garden! That's probably why the hostas are less holey this season too - toads love slugs!

Here's one of my critters - I call this TOAD SANDWICH!

A Hummingbird Moth darts in for a quick shot of Iris "whiskey."

I love tree frogs AND I also have a Sum of All ! Unfortunately I think the frog population is down here.. I know my neighbor hates them.. and kills them... They are too loud for him.....

Of course he finds his Pitbull to be a great animal to have around .....
