And now for something altogether different...

Toby and I were enjoying a quiet evening on the deck, when I looked at my tomato plant and noticed...something. On closer investigation, this is what I saw:

Yup, that's our friendly local tree frog, eating a tomato horn worm.

Awesome. I didn't even know they ate worms. I am terribly grateful that they do, though - I found 3 more worms on there yesterday, and they are enjoying my tomato leaves a little too much.
We sat there staring at him for ages.

The leg thing kills me.

Isn't that amazing? In a tree frog, I see the handiwork of God.

For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made... (Romans 1:19-20)

I love it. What great shots of the little critter. We've had a lot of those little tree frogs near our house this year, too.
