Green Tree frog, Hyla cinerea, in Loropetalum shrub
Look before you clip! That is my mantra. I have cried in the past when my pruning sheers sliced through butterfly chrysalises so now I try to prune more carefully. Today's unharmed critter is a gorgeous, sparking green tree frog, Hyla cinerea. He was sleeping in the overgrown Loropetalum that I was trimming. This green tree frog has a pink bouquet ready for Valentine's day! "Froggie went a courtin', mmm-hmmm."
