Those two photos with the legs spread apart weren't there when I looked at this. I stand corrected, it is a pine woods.

Squirrel Treefrog was my first thought but I was bothered by the gray patch running back from the eye.
In the additional pic - the one of the complete frog - is it my imagination that I'm seeing yellow spots in the gray area on the back of the hind legs. If they are yellow spots, this would be Pinewoods Treefrog - see: http://ufwildlife.ifas.ufl.edu/images/Hy...

Thanks PucaK. I'm pretty terrible at telling tree frogs apart. I uploaded two more photos (the first two) in case that helps with the ID
