life_in_maine_night_visitorThis intrepid animal had climbed onto the window screen outside our office to take advantage of the insects our room lights attract (to give you a sense of scale, each square of the screen is about 1.5mm wide or about 1/16″). Frogs (and a I assume toads as well) serenade us throughout the summer. But it seems to be in September that I actually catch sight of these creatures. Click on the image for a larger view.
