    I'm not sure where to post this but I fiund the cutest tiny tree frog in my front yard. I snatched him up and went to get my camera. When I was done, I put him out of my traffic zone. I was very careful where I stepped after that:)

    Looks like one to me. They are so cool!!! They change color based upon humidity, if I remember correctly. Brownish when it's dry and green when there's rain coming. [​IMG]

    Aren't the adorable. Here's a picture of one in 'brown' mode...
    I'm surprised I saw it, it was so well camouflaged

    I really like frogs and toads mainly because they love mosquito's and gnats and flies! I have them in my goldfish/water lily ponds. Love to listen to them.

    I used to have a few tree frogs. When they saw me coming with my bug net you'd see the beady eyes all come up to the top log and sit there waiting for me to put the bug net over with the bugs I had caught. They changed shades of green or brown over the day or depending on where they were sitting, but never had one change from brown to green or green to brown.

    Bisqit, that looks like a 'spring peeper'. They're adorable, my brothers and I used to catch them when we were little.

    Our spring peepers are quieting down now, but there are tadpoles everywhere.
