Tiny Frogs (in the wild)

I’m going way back, to our weekend in Chicago, to the Botanic Gardens.  I know you’re probably expecting to see some flowers, or at least trees, but I have to start with my favorite part of our few hours there.  We were walking along a graveled path, when suddenly one of the tiny bits of gravel leapt sideways.  I thought that my eyes had been imagining things, but – it leapt again.  Notice any

Tiny Frog!


Upon closer examination, it was a tiny little frog, and it wasn’t just on its own – the path was full of them, all over the place.

Itsy Bitsy Frog

Here’s one next to our friend Josh’s fingers for scale:

Frog, Josh's Fingers


I’ve never seen such a thing before.  It was crazy how small they were.  I’m afraid that I may have squashed a number of them before noticing that they were there, but hopefully not….

  1. Awwww, those are some seriously cute tiny frogs! I’m betting they’re also super quick so you probably didn’t step on any.

    • I hope you are right! I couldn’t enjoy the garden for the rest of the time we were on that path; I was half keeping my eye out for more frogs (both to admire their tininess and to avoid stepping on them) and half worrying about all the frogs I had potentially crushed.
