Hyla chrysoscelis, 12 April 2014

Hyla chrysoscelis, the Cope’s grey treefrog;
Gilchrist county, Florida (12 April 2014).

Cope’s grey treefrog (or gray treefrog, if you prefer it with an “a”) is a damn fine species. Unfortunately, it doesn’t quite range to my home territory in Volusia County. Fortunately, however, they do range not-too-far north and west of here. This was one of many individuals I was privileged to spend a very wet evening with in Gilchrist county back in 2014. There were so many varieties in this local population of Cope’s grey treefrogs. This ornate pattern was my favorite.
