Pine Barrens Treefrog, New Jersey

I apologize for the lapse in posting. My extended weekend was spent in north-central Pennsylvania at a friend's cabin with a bunch of herpers. It was a ton of fun hanging out by the campfire, as well as heading out into the field to find reptiles and amphibians - new and old species alike. I managed to take some photographs, but most of the time was spent "speed herping" with the guys and not on obtaining new images. Until I'm ready to post some of the photographs from my Pennsylvania trip, this image is from a week earlier in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey. The subject of the photograph is the Pine Barrens Treefrog. The Pine Barrens Treefrog is a small, colorful treefrog found only in a few bogs of the New Jersey Pine Barrens and a few scattered southern populations. These treefrogs begin calling around dusk and can be extremely hard to pinpoint based on their voice. Using full flash at night, I was able to handhold my camera for easier maneuverability in the cramped forest conditions and obtain several nice images of this species.
