Aside from fly fishing, I really enjoy being outside and finding critters, particularly reptiles and amphibians, so imagine my surprise when I found one of these on my garbage can this morning. For those of you who aren't familiar, it's an eastern Grey Treefrog, and it's the first one I've seen in the wild. I think he's really neat, but then again I'm a bit of a nerd.

That is cool. They are actually very common. Not as common as spring peepers, but fairly common nonetheless. It's just that you rarely actually see tree frogs. Good camo and they spend most of their lives high up in trees.

I knew they were around here, as they have a very distinct call and I hear them all the time just never actually found one, mostly because they are mainly nocturnal and spend most of their time high in trees. As to your camo comment, that is why I had to take a pic after placing him back on my oak tree, and as an interesting aside, they are actually interesting in that they are able to change their coloration to blend into their surroundings, thus many that are seen are green or brown and not gray.
