Hyla cinerea, 12 April 2014

Hyla cinerea, the American green treefrog;
Gilchrist county, Florida (12 April 2014).

With its bright yellow freckles in full bloom, this American green treefrog was pretty easy to spot from afar. This particular weekend in Gilchrist county was absolutely wild. I camped out there for a night, and much of the area was absolutely inundated with standing water. Tons of mosquitos and heaps of frogs. I wasn’t one to complain. I found this one before the sun set (and found many, many more once the dark had risen).
