Check check it ouuuut! Fiddy cent in da house!
Huh?? Well… More like on the house – my door and window to be specific ;). This lil guy comes every night to feast on the moth and bug buffet that I so generously provide by keeping my curtains open at night when the lights are on. I call him Fiddy because he’s only about the size of a 50 cent coin so he’s only little (about 3cm or 1.18 inches for those non 50cent havin folks). And that’s me assuming it’s a he… um… no idea how to detect the difference if you get me. All pics can be clicked upon to make them bigger if you want to see him in his full glory.
So last night he decided to drop by with his girl du jour (some hussy from the pond no doubt).
I had to close the curtains because it was freezing last night but next to the window is my front back door which has glass inserts and they adjourned there for some alfresco fine dining. You can kinda get a bit more of a better feel for how big they are in the pic below too.
I got up the nerve to slowly and carefully open the door to see if I could get a pic of their backs (I was having visions of them jumping off into the house or in my face! Thankfully they restrained themselves from doing that to me) and eh voila below is what they look like:
No idea what kind of frog they are apart from cute. And I had no idea that frog’s eyes glowed in a flash until now. I can add him to the Spot the Wildlife list. I’m trying to get some pics of the Black Cockatoos (aka Pterodactyls) that have taken up residence in the pine trees nearby. They have the strangest bird call I’ve ever heard (hence the Pterodactyl) and a really beautiful shape when they’re flying as they have really long tail feathers. I think they’re yellow-tailed Black Cockatoos based on the sounds I’ve googled https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M_Cr8uzwMPI as the red-tailed sounds a bit more shrieky than dinosaury hehe.
Weirdly enough I’ve had ‘Scribe – Not Many’ going round in my head writing this… wrong rapper (and probably better *gasp*, Youtube it 🙂 )
