Green Treefrog (Hyla cinerea)

The preceding photo shows a Green Treefrog (Hyla cinerea) spotted during a photowalk through Huntley Meadows Park on 04 October 2013. Contrast the appearance of this specimen with the Green Treefrog featured in my last post: This individual has a darker green body and the cream stripes along its sides and legs are outlined in blackish-gray.

Green Treefrog

December 24, 2013

The following photos show a Green Treefrog (Hyla cinerea) spotted during a photowalk through Huntley Meadows Park on 16 October 2013.

I saw the treefrog while I was searching for dragonflies. The little frog seemed to be intent on crawling into a crack in the boardwalk, as shown in the following gallery. I watched with amusement until I noticed a large group of people walking toward our location, so I nudged the frog in the direction of the cattails alongside the boardwalk. The frog resisted my prodding at first; suddenly it jumped at least six feet onto the rushes! I was happy to show the frog to the people after it had moved to a safer spot (shown above).

Several Green Treefrogs (Hyla cinerea) spotted along the boardwalk that goes through the central wetland area at Huntley Meadows Park. Photos 6-7 show “Louisa,” a good friend and fellow Project Noah spotter, photographing the treefrog in Photos 1-2.
