I never tire of seeing a well-camouflaged creature, such as the frog or toad in these pictures. I almost flicked this rock off of my foothold, but stopped, realizing it was no rock. (How a rock had inserted itself onto a foothold I had used 15 minutes earlier hadn't occurred to me.) I admire not only how the frog/toad matches the granite, but also how half of it's back matches the dirt on the granite. Of course, after a vigorous day of rock climbing, I, too, often match the dirt.
I use this blog as a companion to my website www.brightstarstemeculavalley.org, where I call attention to local light pollution and share my enthusiasm for science and astronomy. I'm also a contributor to www.SkepticalScience.com.
