Yard Residents


The tiny frog jumped when I picked up a sandstone rock from a pile I was moving. It froze in place, confident in its camouflage. The dirt on it hid any markings it had.

I think it’s a chorus frog. My mind said “chorus frogs” when I’d hear frogs calling earlier this summer after dark.


I first saw this kingsnake when I almost stepped on it.


It continued on to the shrub border where it could disappear into the thick of things.


Then yesterday, I walked toward the house and a frog jumped from the grass in front of me. It’s the same kind as the one above. The odd thing is that I don’t remember seeing these in the yard before. They were maybe an inch or so long.



I was again moving rocks and this leopard frog jumped near me. Their call sounds like its laughing/chuckling.

  1. Cute little frogs.


  2. I think I know why the snake is visiting!


  3. I think it might be a gray tree frog. I see toe discs in the first photo.
