Little frogs

I noticed that some of the tadpoles in the rain barrel had grown legs and were clinging to the side of the barrel.  Today when I walked by, I saw this little fellow on a sweetgum leaf.  He's probably between 1/2 and 5/8 of an inch long.

Treefrogs can change their color to blend in with the surroundings, and this little guy was looking quite green.  He was a good sport and stayed still while I took his picture.


  1. VERY GOOD camera use. I like the little dudes. It had been so long since I heard a Frog that while near a Beaver dam the other day, it took me awhile to recognize the sound, I finlly spotted the dude but not enough to get a picture. These are good.

    1. I've been hearing a different frog this year. I think it must be a wood frog because it sounds a bit like a duck quacking, and that is the description of the wood frog's call. I don't remember hearing them around here before, so I guess they are expanding their territory. I have not been able to see them, only hear them.
