Browny on the path

Today I met my first frog at home

While moving a pot of succulents in the garden I pulled a dead leaf away & a blur of brown lept from the middle of the pot onto the path. I wasn't expecting company & got quite a fright. He seemed a bit stunned and just sat there still as anything while I took a few photos.

We've been hearing a 'weeeeep-eeep-eeep-eeep-eeep-eeep' sound for months now thinking it was most likely frogs. So it's nice to see one and confirm we have brown frogs hanging around. I'd hoped they would be native but they were introduced into New Zealand in 1875.
