Yellow Porch Light Predator And Prey

Tree frogs have discovered that under our yellow porch light there is a virtual buffet available. In the past 11 years, we’d occasionally see a tree frog on the porch, but we are now seeing up to eight at a time. I guess word is getting around.

Another valuable predator found in large quantities in the hollow is the fascinating creature we call the dragonfly. We appear to have a variety of species here, all congregating up and down the creek. At dusk, especially, they are out hunting. This particular specimen must have heard some frogs talking. I’d never seen one under the porch light before.
