Northern Leopard Frog

     Last Friday while monitoring at a wet meadow, we came across this Northern Leopard Frog - otherwise known as a Meadow Frog because they spend much of their time in meadows.  He really is quite a handsome fellow.   

  Leopard Frogs can have a background color of either green or brown, but in my experience are more commonly green.  I was unable to find out if the same individual can change color over time, which would be a definite advantage.  This one certainly was well suited to hiding in the fall landscape  (he's in the center of the photo above).

  1. I never fully appreciated the camouflage of these critters.
    That's pretty amazing.
