The other day, as I was pulling up the blinds in the living room, I noticed I had a wee visitor. It was sitting very quietly on the vertical surface of one of the casement window frames. If I had closed that window, he would have been one very squashed visitor.
A casement window is hinged at the sides, and mine swing out from a middle opening, something like this:
Today, I wanted to put on the airconditioner for awhile, so I had to close those windows. That meant I had to move the wee fellow. So, I put on a disposable glove, moistened it with some water, and transferred him (?) to a safer spot outside.
Here he is:
He's not quite 5 cm (2 inches) long. I'm not sure of the exact species .. one of the tree frog family, probably.
