I haven't seen many frogs this summer but on Monday of this week we went on a hike and family picnic along the Mud Lake Nature Trail and luckily my daughter saw this Green Frog and pointed it out to us. Isn't it a fascinating creature! Also along the Mud Lake Trail we saw Picture Plants and Common Wood Sorrel, a delicate looking, very pretty wildflower , that I had not seen before.
On Sunday my husband and I were out driving and stopped along an old woods road to look at some rocks along the side of the road. It was a bit moist and wet there and my husband drew my attention to a small handsome creature there., because of its brown and, black colouing we at first thought it might be a toad, thinking, if it were a frog, it should be green, but no we were wrong. this handsome looking little amphibian was a Pickerel Frog! The first of this species that I have ever seen. A great find! Thank you , David.
And a week or so ago I turned to drive into a favourite woods road but my way was impeded by a huge puddle. I shifted into 4 wheel drive thinking I would drive through it , when I saw a frog in the middle of it. Its a good thing I saw you basking there, Mr. Green Frog because I took your picture rather than driving through your home.
