Brown VS Green

Sunday a bit of rain and a thunderstorm rolled through the area. I went outside to lift the cushions up in case the rain tried to push its way under the porch. I had to go get the camera to take photos of what I found under the cushion.
Note what I have to deal with in taking a cold camera outside on a humid day.
Even though the camera was still fogged up I wanted to take a shot of this little tree frog under the cushion before he hopped away. OK the camera is clear and I guess he's not going anywhere fast so I was able to get a few shots in. He was really slimy even though being under a piece of stuffed cloth.A rather brownish fellow.Or is he greenish?Morgan doesn't care what color he is...he deserves a pet!and a photograph.He moved a little bit toward the cushion and when I went out a minute later to check on him...
he was green!I wonder if it was a tough job turning, cause you know what they say......"it's not easy being green"

He's lucky no one sat on him! I do believe he's a Grey Tree Frog. It was my first thought so I looked him up and sure enough, that's exactly what he looks like. AND they change color!

For once I'm giving you the ID of a critter ; )

He's so cute!!!
I love frogs, especially little frogs

You must have a lot of humidity there. I only have foggy lens issues in winter.

btw, we're going kayaking this weekend. :)

Green and cute! I'm glad he stuck around for some photos. Don't you hate when the lens fogs up like that?
