Our Wild Kingdom

 This evening Laura let out a death curdling scream. She was sitting with her back to the window as this little fellow took a fly leap onto the window.  After I got the appropriate photos, I sent Mark out back to catch the little beauty.
I've seen teeny tiny tree frogs in the past, in fact, we raised from tadpoles about 50 tiny "peepers".  Once they acquired their legs they started climbing out of the fish tank we raised them in.  (We immediately set them free.
This from was much bigger, a little over an inch long.
 I did some investigating and I believe it is a gray tree frog.
Gracie, in between screams, learned that gray tree frogs have very sticky foot pads.
Fun find!
