Artist's Description

Cuban treefrog.
Osteopilus septentrionalis.
Residential Sanford, Florida.
28 April 2007.
Nikon D70s.

One of the things I miss most about Florida are the frogs. During those beautiful spring nights, I’d sit out on my front patio and pick on my guitar, listening to the chorus of treefrogs and toads who shared the neighborhood with us. In Alaska, the night is much more quiet. And, this time of year at least, during the winter, it’s slightly colder.

Back in Florida, when I was a bit bored from time to time, I’d simply walk around the neighborhood, tracking the high walls, and look for the Cuban treefrogs. A non-indigenous treefrog, these dudes are fairly well established in certain corners of central Florida. They can be very large by our treefrog standards. Not quite as massive as a bullfrog, perhaps – - but impressively large.

At night, especially when it was just a tad bit cold, I’d just head out and watch them watching me. Simple pleasures.
