Hmmm . . . will that beetle fit in my mouth?

I call this photo, “The Philosophical Frog”. He looks as though he’s thinking, doesn’t he? The treefrogs I see in my yard have hatched in one of two ponds nearby, and will spend the summer here eating and resting. I love having them around, so I avoid using pesticides and herbicides, which they could absorb through their delicate skins—and which would deplete the insect populations they depend on.
