The American green tree frog (Hyla cinerea) is a common backyard amphibian that is found throughout the central and southeastern United States. They seem to be especially common in my yard. I can hardly turn over a leaf or a rock without encountering one. Indeed, there's even one that joins me on my patio.
|But the little green frogs might turn up anywhere in the yard these days. For example, sunning on a crinum leaf.|
|Or even well tucked in between the petals of an amaryllis blossom. This is actually a picture from last spring, but the amaryllises are beginning to bloom, so I'm keeping my eye open for another photo op for Kermit!|
