|This cute froggy is a northern leopard frog. The similarly spotted pickerel frog is more common in New England, but they have bright yellow or orange patches on the sides that this one lacks.|
|A closeup, showing the very prominent light-colored dorso-lateral ridges on the froggy's back. This frog was about 2 or 3 inches long.|
|I was somewhat surprised to see a frog in the dry blueberry scrub, since they normally stick pretty close to water, but not far down the trail I saw the remnants of a spring pond.|
|Hi there! Ribbit ribbit.|
