He looks harmless, but don't be deceived.

A few days ago Steven spotted this cute little green frog on top of my truck. I, of course, wanted to take a picture of the little guy (or gal). I opened the passenger door, climbed up, stretched my arm out as far as it would go, and snapped a picture. Steven tossed his baseball cap up on the hood in an attempt to gently nudge the frog a tiny bit closer to the camera. Well, the frog decided to take a two feet leap from the center of the hood and landed on my neck! I could feel one leg on my face and the rest of him attached to my neck. I let out a blood-curdling scream, the frog released its death grip, landed with a soft thud on the driveway, and quickly hopped into the nearby bushes. Needless to say, my husband laughed so hard he cried. He probably wouldn't have found the scene quite so funny if I would have toppled from my precarious perch. After I recovered from my fright, I had a good laugh, too. Next time I'll think twice before going in for a close-up. That's what Photoshop is for.

Very nice pic, and he IS in a cute pose. He looks so content sitting there. BUT . . . if he had landed on me, there would probably be no truck left! LOL I would have torn up everything in my way to get it off me. It makes me cringe just to think about a frog on my neck!

Oh, my goodness! That would have freaked me out too. I likely would have fainted. But I laughed since it was you :)

I have also meant this little creature this summer and screamed...I think he stays hidden away in my garden now. :)
Hope you are feeling better and stronger as the summer goes along.

If that happened to me it would be a very long time before I could laugh about it.....and if my husband laughed...well, it might be the last time he did! Yes, I have an extreme phobia of anything reptilion or amphibian!

Great picture! And what a funny story!---Because it happened to you and not me. LOL (o;

Oh, I'm sorry, but I have to tell you -- I really did laugh out loud! And then my husband came over to ask me what was so funny! I agree with Michele, though... if it had happened to me, it wouldn't have been so funny at all. Glad he wasn't harmful, at least, right? :o)
