Sharing some shots from a couple of walks...
A tiny ladybug...spotted on a mint leaf. Don't see many ladybugs around here, so was excited to see one.
Huge bullfrog, this guy was croaking really loudly.
When he spotted us on the bridge from down below he stopped.
The shobu (iris) are in bloom now at Suigetsu Park.
We love this park, so relaxing.
Caught this guy relaxing with his dog.
(I actually only noticed the dog after while looking through the photos).
You see many "dead umbrellas" after a storm, especially if it is windy.
People, you should take care of your "dead umbrella" instead of leaving it for someone else to pick up...
Also in bloom are the ajisai or hydrangea.
There are different varieties and you can see them in yards and in many parks.

Oh, and the other day on the way to the market, there was a 2 foot snake in the stream next to our apartment...eep! A man in our neighborhood was sweeping and picking up rubbish when he spotted it.
I saw him looking at something in the stream and went over to check it out...and saw the thing "swimming"...yikes!
And I spotted this goya plant peeking out yesterday morning on the lanai...crossing fingers for some bigger goya this year.
What have you been seeing on your walks?
