Camouflaged


 
The cute frog and pretty Firetail were spotted on a visit to a charming property at Mylor in the Adelaide Hills this week.

What a unique bird. Thanks for sharing.

Cracking little bird - great colour.

I think it may be a red-browed finch, rather than a fire tail, but these are just made up names anyway!

The Firetail is a new one for me - a nice looking bird. That frog looks to be keeping out of harms way.

Loving the frog picture!

I like that first shot.

Thank you all for your comments. (The hostess of the property knew the frog had found a home between the outdoor tabletop planks, hiding beneath a bonsai olive tree, and kindly brought it to my attention). Stewart - I think we are both correct; Simpson & Day's Field Guide to Australian Birds identifies this as a Red-Browed Firetail within the Grass Finch family.

The frog looks squeezed inside that location--good hiding place! Thanks for your comment on my blog
