Acris gryllus gryllus, 12 January 2013

Acris gryllus gryllus, the Southern cricket frog;
Lowndes county, Georgia (12 January 2013).

The almost-electric colorplay of some Southern cricket frogs never ceases to amaze. This subspecies, also regionally known as the Coastal Plain cricket frog, is extremely variable in coloration and patterning, but most of them do sport a single dorsal stripe that splits into a v-pattern pointing towards each eye. In the Valdosta area, I saw a decent number of extremely bright and vivid Southern cricket frogs, but most were a bit more muted in color.
