A bit late for #FrogFriday, but I had to go out and find a frog! This is the creatively named Green Treefrog (Hyla cinerea), a very common species around here. They're often found clinging to the wall near porch lights, attracted by the insects.

For #FrogFriday, have a Barking Treefrog (Hyla gratiosa). They're native to the southeast USA and particularly seem to like sandhill ponds. They're large and heavy for a treefrog, with a round body and thick legs. They can climb trees, but they can also burrow like a toad. As their name suggests, they have a loud, barking call. To me, they sound like Canada geese.

Met this little guy while fixing the fence he's on. He kept attacking the camera lens, which was awesome as it put him right where I could take a whole bunch of photos!

Actually, I think the color's a little muted in the picture. They were very bright irridescent blue-green.

Went outside a few minutes ago and thought, "Huh. Something's really weird." It took me a few seconds to realize what it was: the sun was out, but it wasn't 90 degrees! Weird, indeed.

I would've just died. I have the same philosophy of Indiana Jones. "why did it have to be snakes?"

Florida does have fall colors. They're just subtler than those up north.

For #FrogFriday, here's an Ornate Chorus Frog (Pseudacris ornata). These little guys are native to the Southeast US. They come in three colors: gray, reddish-brown, and bright green. They breed in late winter, mostly in ephemeral ponds, which is about the only place and time you're likely to see them as they are very secretive outside their breeding season. Their call sounds quite a bit like their better-known cousin the Spring Peeper (Pseudacris crucifer).

Their population status is debated. They are not listed as threatened by any government entity, but they do seem to be declining over most of their range.

+Candace Hansen - Thank you! I think the decline is mostly due to dry winters in Florida for the past decade. Hopefully there will be a few rainy winters in the near future.
+Robbie Taylor - Yup. I find the copper ones most often, but the gray and green ones are just as pretty.

I just spent a day when I had a million other things to do reading Douglas Adams' Last Chance to See. I consider it time well spent.
