Lithobates sphenocephalus, 15 April 2023 (b)

Lithobates sphenocephalus, the Southern leopard frog;
Volusia county, Florida (15 April 2023).

Check out this behemoth of a Southern leopard frog. I’m amazed I was able to get so close; the frog was facing the water and tensing its muscles every few seconds — ready to spring to action. Eventually, that’s just what it did, right back into the water.
