When Tree Frogs Attack

Jeff gets a small green no-prize for bringing us this story of just how determined a determined frog can be:

As we're pulling out of the driveway, the Mrs. noticed a tree frog sitting between the cowls on the hood ... Hit 70 and the wind was makin him dance, but he was still cling'n on by his sticky little feet!! ... Right when I'm about to pass [a truck], our little friend jumped out from behind the hood and landed right in the middle of the windshield ... Everyone in the car were just eyeballin this little thing, then all of a sudden, he started hoppin!! Thing is, he wasn't going anywhere cause with each hop the wind just kept blowing him back onto the windshield. So I slowed down to about 50, hoping that he'd be able to hop off on his own....

He hopped and hopped and managed to get over to the left side of the windshield....

Then he jumped onto my left side mirror

He was staring right at me and before I could get the window up, he jumped onto the left lens of my sunglasses!

The site is pretty slow, but the story is well worth it.

Owning a convertible, I don't worry about frogs, I worry about wasps.
