This little frog had markings which make it almost invisible in its hunting ground.
It saves itself from the birds and snakes with the help of its camouflage.

This moth was sleeping on my window curtain the whole afternoon. It looked like a print on the fabric.

The mantid in the picture below sits quietly on the marigold, waiting for its prey.

The mantids I have seen in my garden are usually green, but this one had interesting markings, making it invisible among the French marigolds.
These are some of the friends of my garden.


  1. What a fun, colorful post for the day! Love the frog! Hope your week is going well!


  2. I never seen this type of mantis and butterfly before! They should be every special! It's a wonder on how animals protect and hide themselves!

  3. Sylvia, thanks for your good wishes.
    Malar, yes, we can learn many things by observing these small creatures in the garden.
