Shadow on a leaf At this time of year, sometimes I see a shadow on an iris leaf. It’s worth looking to see what’s on the other side. This frog was MUCH smaller than it looks in the picture—the perspective of my hand is deceiving. It was about half an inch long. Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...

The bigger ones in the grass aren’t nearly as tolerant—which I put down to the presence of predatory ducks. Comments are closed.
