Northern Leopard Frog Among Mossy Ground by 

I found this Leopard Frog blending nicely among a moss covered clearing in a State Forest. I always liked this type of moss that this guy is resting upon as it looks like a minature forest within the larger one. Makes you think of faries and pixies. I wonder how they felt about this monster frog trampling upon their forest. :)

This was taken at Morgan Hill State Forest in Cortland County NY

    Wow,…this is an exquisite close up of a Northern Leopard Frog! Love the almost florescent lime green, along with the other colors and markings. It blends nicely into its natural environment, but at the same time stands out just enough. Very nice find! : )

  • Thank you very much, Sandy!

    The irredescent colours of the frog are lovely Bob. You are correct I wouldn’t have guessed it was on moss, but thought it was on a branch of an evergreen tree. Great shot!

  • Thank you Barb!
