This little guy greeted me this morning (not my pic), on the wall of my shower. Before I put my glasses on, I thought the dark blob on the shower wall was one of the large wolf spiders we get around these parts, so I ran for a container to put it in to take him outside.
Better eyesight revealed the dark blob to be instead a Pacific green tree frog, and though I do not have a fear of spiders, my emotion went from “ugh” to “aw, how cute!” They seem so intelligent looking at you with their little eyes. Hopefully he is happier on a bed of leaves in my yard. Does he know he happens to be the official Washington State amphibian?
How he arrived in my bathroom is a mystery. Perhaps he hitched a ride on a painter’s shoe (the house where I live is being painted).
I enjoy visitors from the dander-free animal world since I’m so deadly allergic to every fur or feather-bearing critter.
Thanks for making my day, little frog!
