This year, frogs seem more abundant than in recent years. We've got lots of frogs around our house and want them to stay happy and healthy. Therefore, we avoid using pesticides. With approximately 5,000 species, frogs are one of the most diverse, but threatened, groups of vertebrates. We spent a lot of time studying this frog before photographing from this angle. Judging by the whitish spots under the eyes of this frog on our door, this is a gray tree frog . The photo shows the translucence, permeability, and vulnerability of a frog's skin. Also, you can barely see it but between the frog's eye and extended right front leg, some bugs are using his skin as a host.
Now that the days are longer and the weather warmer, we hope to capture more photos for Camera Critters. We're going to double dip and share this with our friends at Weekend Reflections! If you want to smile and have about a minute, click here to listen to Froggie went a Courtin'!
