Sometimes you're lucky, and they just come to you. (Green Barking tree frog, Hyla cinerea gratiosa.)

Shortly after whining about being sick yesterday, I chipped my front tooth while biting my fingernail.

So, maybe I'm just frog-lucky.

I was going to say, "Doesn't he have a pretty eye?" But after staring at the close-up while doing the photo cropping, I'm finding it slightly creepy. A hypnotist's eye. Squinting and wide-open at the same time.


Thanks to Swampy for correcting my ID!

Ick, sick

Since just after my last post almost a month ago, I've been unwell.

First there was discomfort, and an attempt to postpone the doctor til after the craft show. Then there was pain, a can't-take-it-no-more doctor visit, and the missing of a craft show. Finally there were pills and a little loopy relief. Eventually a long, slow recovery, with lots of wish I had more pain pills malaise.

I'm 90% better, but that last 10% is taking forever. I'm still not in good form for bending, stooping, or scrunching photography maneuvers. So I've been playing in Photoshop with earlier shots.
