Southborough is a chorus of voices on a summer evening. I love throwing the windows wide and listening to the nighttime sounds (while staying inside away from all those nasty mosquitoes). Much of the nocturnal racket is produced by tree frogs – a fact I learned only recently. It still amazes me that such a big sound can come from such a small creature.
We had a special daytime visit by a gray tree frog who nestled his way into a bucket of my daughter’s outdoor toys earlier this summer. Before we encouraged him back into the woods where he belongs, I snapped a few shots. He proved a most willing model. Click on a thumbnail in the gallery below to enlarge.
