A frog a day

Holy jumpin' amphibian batman!

It's been 3 days in a row that we've had frogs outside the dining room. First was the graceful tree frog from the last post, then yesterday was this Green-thighed frog:

And tonight was a tiny little Eastern Sedgefrog.

By the way, I find most of the critter names for this blog from one book, so I figure I should at least mention it. It's called Wildlife Of Greater Brisbane from the Australian Museum. John Passfield recommended it and it's been really helpful.

Anyway, sedge frogs are quite common and we hear them all the time, but this is the first time I've seen one.

More frog pictures

What do we have here? Another frog. The same one as last week?

It was in a really cool froggy pose tonight so I couldn't resist taking pictures. Here you go:

Wet Season

The wet season has begun here in Brisbane. Big showers yesterday and today have brought out the rain critters. That includes toads and frogs. Here's a Graceful Treefrog we saw this evening clinging to our dining room window. Sticky!
