cool photos of the wide screen shot of the vernal pool. you take very good pictures of frogs. And i am a tree frog master.

that is a very good picture of the gray tree frog. Keep it up.

So beautiful. I love these frogs. I think they're so special, and like djhocking, I commend you on your find. Nice work and you just made my day!

I'm amazed that you spotted that frog! Very lightly colored and blends in so well. It is definitely a gray treefrog. However, I think it's a female. At this time of year the males have been calling long enough that most have dark gray throats. The throat on this one is mottled with black and white which is normal for the species. Juveniles, females, and males outside the breeding season all have this type of throat pattern.

Nice ID and amazing eyes in spotting that frog! Way to go.

What a great photo! I'm amazed you spotted this frog, he's very well camouflaged.Nicely done, keep up the good work :)
