Ok, so I'm not a big frog person, but isn't that just the cutest little face??? We have these little guys everywhere. After a big rain a couple of weeks ago, we had tons of baby frogs - in the garden, on the greenhouse, on the trash cans . . . you could barely step in the yard without seeing one hop out of the way. At first, it was hard to tell what they were. Some of them still had little tails in the beginning (again, sooooo cute!). One even had a beautiful golden sheen covering it. But now we can clearly see that our babies have developed into separate species.
I know we had spring peepers, but I don't think this batch is more peepers. Every site tells me they aren't green. The green guys in my garden are probably just little green tree frogs. We have loads of them every year.
The rest of the frogs, however, are developing different colorings and markings. They don't seem to make much of any noise, and now that they're getting bigger, some (the trash can clan) are getting a little tubby around the middle.
Then, there are these guys . . .
I'm not exactly sure what species these are (yet), but we're having fun hunting for them every afternoon. They seem to be particularly fond my chard and strawberry plants. Whatever they are, they are certainly welcome friends at this point.
