This picture is of a Pacific Tree Frog which is also known as the Chorus Frog. You’ve probably heard them “singing” on spring or early summer evenings if you’ve been near any body of fresh water. I saw this one in my garden when it hopped out of some ivy when I was watering the fuchsia above it and water started dripping onto the ivy and presumably the frog.
One can’t help but be amazed at all of the diversity and complexity of God’s creation.
Oh, visit the earth, ask her to join the dance! Deck her out in spring showers, fill the God-River with living water. Paint the wheat fields golden. Creation was made for this! Drench the plowed fields, soak the dirt clods With rainfall as harrow and rake bring her to blossom and fruit. Snow-crown the peaks with splendor, scatter rose petals down your paths, All through the wild meadows, rose petals. Set the hills to dancing, Dress the canyon walls with live sheep, a drape of flax across the valleys. Let them shout, and shout, and shout! Oh, oh, let them sing!
Psalm 65: 9-13 (The Message)
