Frog at Boca Ciega Park

This is the first frog I have photographed since I changed to digital. We came across this frog while we were lost at Boca Ciega Park, right before we saw the Osprey that I posted about last week. Don't you think he blends with his environment so well? He was under a shrub too, we almost missed him.

Leedra,
What a great eye you have to have seen this frog...he really does blend in with his environment. Love the black and silver looking eye, plus I always love the diff. patterns on frong and turtles. Hope you are enjoying nice weather..save some of that sunshine to bring home!!:)

Looks somewhat familiar to me. Several rode as eggs all the way to Minnesota (I think)attached to some water plants I bought from a dealer in Florida. Amazing.

Lovely! Really good shot of it!

Wonderful capture...I have yet to get one with digital. and only have our 'pet' on film. And I think she must have passed away because I didn't see her last summer.

He blends in very well! Good eye to spot him! Aren't their eyes just so intriguing!

Hi Leedra, what you have there is
a toad. According to my Field
Guide to Reptiles & Amphibians of
East & Central North America by
Roger Conant (1975), there are at
least four species that are found
in Florida. Going out on a limb
here, I believe it looks like a
Southern Toad (Bufo terrestris).
Any herp specialists out there?
Always enjoy your posts Leedra.

He is so cute and can be easily missed. Love the photos.

Hap has got me again. My little fellow is a toad, instead of a frog.

I see that someone already said it was a toad. Next to birds, I love frogs and toads next best. I can't wait for this season's Frog Watch as I will be so much better prepared this time. Also scrolled down and enjoyed all the photos especially the waterfowl....--Michelle--
