unexpected visitor




it was late afternoon...
dear reader ..
and the sun was striking the hydrangeas with
golden rays ...
and I thought...











it would be a perfect time to take some photos for you...
so I began with the pinks ...
and moved on to the blues...







but something caught my eye in the pinks...
a leaf where one ought not to be??






but on closer examination,
I found a tiny little unexpected visitor...










and without my glasses, I would never have seen him at all...
until I had taken the photos...
cute little froglet..









and completely at ease in my presence...
just resting his little legs on a fluffy bed of hydrangea blooms...

Life is Good...

That is truly magical! Cameras are good for so much more than just snapping pictures .... It was an opportunity to really slow down and look :)

Yes - Life is Good! What beautiful images of a lovely moment. Thank you so much for sharing it. I would love to see this beautiful little frog, and the hydrangeas in person.

Sweet foggy baby. We have so many frogs here with the pond as you imagine...but, never seen a tiny one in the blooms. xox

I consider my camera to be another body part! So many little miracles to share that vision alone misses.
For this post, you had me at hydrangeas...love them and have never been able to grow thin in a garden, just pots. The tiny froglet is a nature spirit, come to kiss you with delight!

How clever of you to get this little darling on "film." You have no idea how many things I have noticed after I have taken a shot and downloaded the photos to my computer. It's a true blessing in disguise. Or maybe hidden among the hydrangeas.

Les hortensias sont des fleurs étonnantes, belles et généreuses.J'habite en Bretagne et cette région est un paradis pour hortensia. Merci pour tes très jolies photos.
