Cope's Gray Treefrog

Hyla chrysoscelis


Newly metamorphosed, these <15 mm froglets are almost transparent.


These frogs colonized a hard plastic children's wading pool that I have landscaped with native aquatic plants. It is true that if you build it, they will come!

Thanks Ann! They are just so adorable when they are that small.

This is a jewel of a frog!

Thanks Anne! I love to go out and prowl at night. I sometimes get really nice shots that have a totally different look than my daytime shots!

Beautiful shots!

How gorgeous! All shiny & new!
I hope I get frogs in my new ponds!

I went out to check 'my' pond last night and did not see any more of these guys. When they go through metamorphoses, they do not seem to linger long at the pond afterwards.
