I shot these guys over Labor Day weekend.

A gray treefrog. Well, I know that its actually green, but the gray tree frog (Hyla versicolor) is the species. Ha ha.


A wood frog.


An american toad.


The same wood frog as above. Note the same, very annoying pine needle resting atop his head.


As you probably noticed, when it comes to amphibians, my favorite shot is the close-up, "in your face" shot.
Enjoy!

yes they are amazing. i have done a lot of schooling based around amphibians as well as my own research. Well we evolved from amphibians they say. the first to come onto land with lungs from the water! kristy:)
