An adult Pickerel Frog found in my yard.
Yard with adjacent pond.
The temperature was well over 90 degrees with a heat index around 100 and full sun. I find it strange, but I often find this species fairly far away from the water - sometimes over 100 feet - and they seem to be more active on land in hot weather like this.
