Hi there! by Mieke Boynton

These little guys greet me every day from my toilet bowl. I have tried to relocate them many, many, many times, but they always come back. I usually have two to put up with, but occasionally three decide to make it their ‘hangout’…. Sigh…

Derby (the Kimberley), Western Australia.

I’m just an Aussie girl who’s a bit mad about photography :)

    Oh so cute, what lovely photography Mieke. What a place to hang out!! Must be tricky scooping them out!! lol

  • Tee hee hee – I’m sick of trying to get them out… now I grab the toilet brush and coax them up under the lip so they’re out of the way. Some people try to use bleach to get rid of them, but they’re too cute for me to do that!!

    Very cute. That reminds of the frogs that used to swim in our drinking water tank in the bush .. before we put wire over the openings years later.

  • They’re cheeky little beggars… I never leave the lid up, and I take them outside… and then I find that they’ve come up through the shower drain, hopped around the corner to the loo, jumped up and climbed down in the tiny gap at the back of the seat where it joins the rim. You can’t help but laugh!!! (Especially when you flush the loo and see their little legs flailing away, trying to keep them up under the rim!). Ah, the things you put up with in ‘the bush’! :)

    How gorgeous!
    Could be a little disconcerting if one wasn’t expecting to see them!
