Just a Northern Green Frog Lithobates clamitans melanota on the door step over the weekend. Hunting little slugs in the rain, help yourself buddy. Dig in!
And while we haven't seen a Black Swallowtail yet this year they have seen us. Specifically they have seen our herb seedlings on the back deck and made use of them. There are only about a dozen eggs from this early brood and the fennel, dill and parsley are all growing quickly enough that they ought to get through that initial ravening caterpillar horde hatching any day now.
