This morning I went out to water plants and saw this little guy in my Curcuma "Blue Tung". He was so sure he was out of sight, LOL

I just planted a couple of banana plants and it looked like a tiny little frog in one of the leaves at the base of the leaf.

They live in my greenhouse and the mamas lay eggs in the tanks of my bromeliads. Its so cute when all the little babies hatch out. They are no larger than the size of a fingernail when they start hopping around.

I try to promote an ecosystem for the native wildlife. I have ponds out in front of the GH that serve no real purpose other than for wildlife to come and drink at when its hot and there hasn't been any appreciable rain. I tried to have birdfeeders but the squirrels destroyed them

I go way up in a limb and run a rope tie the feeder to it fill it and pull it up and tie it off. This way they can't even get to it. I had a friend grease the pole and watch them jump up and slide down lol
