Good morning
Thank you for the great response to my naughty lion cub yesterday, he did go onto waking up his two aunts and then his siblings....after that he thought it was time for a nap...that image another day..Grin

Also a big thank you to HarrietH, Kuvailija and Alan_Basely for their UA's....much appreciatedGrin

While we were at the Game lodge,This little tree frog was quietly resting on top of the bathroom mirror watching me have a bath. Blush
Once I was dressed I decided to try and get a photograph of him (I am petrified of frogs, so this was a very brave thing for me to do) even though he is a very tiny frog.
Have a nice day....

No suitable smiley available when you need one.

The In Laws ran over a frog on their drive.
MiL picked it up and brought it back to life.
She put it under the parked car for safety.
Guess what happened next!

The frog watching you have a bath conjures up quite a picture!
The fact that you're afraid of them is strange considering all the big game
you've been close to!! That beady eye looks as if he want sin beside you!!!

You are not alone in your fear of frogs, epzer gary_d has a phobia of them too. When I was with him in the Forest of Dean back in July we saw lots of tiny ones around Woorgreens lake and he was brave enough to photograph them and even picked one up!
