Lithobates sphenocephalus, 02 July 2022

Lithobates sphenocephalus, the Southern leopard frog;
Flagler county, Florida (02 July 2022).

Southern leopard frogs are, as I’m sure they are across most of their range, quite abundant throughout central Florida. This is the species I most commonly encounter during the day. They are often bunkered down along the edges of freshwater bodies, quietly passing through daylight hours, waiting for the sun to set and the action to begin.
