Adult Female Green Frog on Moss, New York

This is another image from my short trip to Upstate New York last weekend. This Green Frog was perhaps the greatest looking Green Frog I have ever come across. The dark mottled markings were truly unique. For me, one of the greatest aspects of nature photography is that the subjects never get old. Even if you've photographed a certain species before, you can always photograph an individual in a new style or location, or (as in this case) photograph various individuals with different markings. As a bit of side trivia, you can tell that this Green Frog is a female by the size of her tympanum (ear membrane). In females, it is roughly the same size as the eye, and in males it is about double the size of the eye.
