Last night we went to a friends house with dinner so we left the light on over our deck as a bit of light for when we arrive home. Even with the moonlight, our country home can be very dark at night. This morning we realized that we had forgotten to turn the lights off and would therefore have welcomed an entire tiny eco-system of sorts to set up camp on our deck. This guy (or gal) was catching what remaining flying creatures he could before the hot sun sends them all packing. The frogs of Western Iowa are much different than any frogs I saw growing up in Nebraska (only toads and the common water frogs you also see in Iowa). Whatever the type, we welcome all bugeaters who want to peacefully visit!
