So I took this picture of this baby frog while hiking.
This was the first one we saw--on the foliage it completely blended in, but on the rocks we could see it clearly.
It was so little and cute--I had to zoom in to get this shot.
After this, it actually jumped under a log and I got an action photo of its hind legs in mid-jump--going what seemed like super-frog speed.
Once, I was attuned to the frogs color and motion, I was able to detect many of them in the forest today--all pretty much like this little baby.
It was interesting to me learning from this, how before we are aware of something--it's as if it doesn't even exist (even with subtle ribbits in the air); and after you are sort of clued in to the surroundings, you almost can't help but see them.
To me, it's like life in general, when you don't see your own issues or life challenges, you can't even begin to work on them because your virtually oblivious to them, but once you see yourself for what you are--warts and all--you can begin to work through your problems, as if you have almost transcendental awareness.
A little camouflaged frog, like subtle personal issues may be almost imperceptible in the forest of life, but against a contrasting background, you can get amazing clarity--to self-help and self-heal.
Cute little frog, I can see you now and your not jumping away from me anymore. ;-)
