Where the livin’ is easy… but not for frogs

I spent the weekend at a cottage that belongs to a friend of my parents. Here is the tale of one or two encounters I had with the local wildlife.

I chased after a butterfly for several minutes before I finally got a decent photo of it:

I settled into a hammock to enjoy the view (and a good book):

The butterfly determined that I am harmless:

… better than painted toenails:

I hope your weekend was as good as mine!
