Hyla chrysoscelis, the Cope’s gray treefrog;
Gilchrist county, Florida (12 April 2014).
Cope’s gray treefrog doesn’t quite range to my neighborhood in Volusia County, but they’re quite abundant west and north of here. This splashy, noisy individual was photographed in Gilchrist county on a hot, humid, and very busy April night. There were gray treefrogs calling all over the place. It was a busy night for them — and for me!
