Surprising Animal Visits

The last couple of days we have found some interesting visitors.  A day or two ago Arianna spotted a tree frog who had climbed inside our house between the sliding glass doors.  I had to help coax him out so that I could try and catch him.  I ended up getting a plastic cup and made him jump in there.

While I was making my way outside to gently deliver him to one of our elephant ear leaves he jumped all the way down the stairs from the cup.  I thought he would get hurt, but he seemed fine.  The girls were a bit upset at him.

Then today while eating lunch Ari was staring at the screen.  When I asked her what she was looking at ( I could not even see what she was looking at from where I was) she responded that either a 'grasshopper of a praying mantis was on our screen'.  I informed her that praying mantis' are pretty big compared to a grasshopper.  So I got my camera and went to take a picture.
It's not a great picture, but it's the best I could do.  He was on our screen and if I moved it he would have hopped off.  So the picture has screen in it too.  Sorry.

Well, that's it for today.  Be sure and head on over to Peace Creek on the Prairie to see more of what others are seeing in nature.
