Blessed Are The Bug Eaters...

a toad,
a spider,
a frog,
and a lizard,
All contribute to the health of the garden.

Very cool photos. I have never seen a lizard only in a cage at the pet store. B

Very true. I never harm any of these creatures I find in the yard. They are so beneficial. :)

There was a snake in the garden once and I freaked out. Hubs, my great defender, says, "Don't scare the snake! They're good for the garden!" I could have smacked him. LOL

What would the garden be without them?

Your fat little frog is so cute! Hmmm, just think, if I were a frog, someone else might think fat is cute!

I had a hard working frog till something ate him. That circle of life is sometimes annoying.

That's why I try to relocate all spiders instead of stepping on them like most people do. And I don't kill snakes. Heck, I don't kill anything except stink bugs and lady bugs (Asian lady beetles.) Oh yeah, and flies. Yuk.

I love all of your pictures of your bug eaters. In the day light though.
At night not so much. :)

I wouldn't mind a toad and a frog. I haven't seen either one. A lizard would be too much to ask for.
