Our two frogs

In the comments to yesterday's post, somebody asked about the frogs around here. Here are two of them, living quietly in our little garden.

I wonder about the two different colors.... male, female?

They're as green as those leaves. Wonderful photo.

I understand that frogs are a good luck symbol in Japan, so hopefully you'll have double good luck now!

@Steve: It's all about camouflage. They usually live in in two different plants, slightly differently coloured, to which they adapted. The left frog is "home", the right one comes from a neighbour plant with more blueish leaves.
