Insects. Doing Science. Other awesome, geeky stuff.

Photo Friday: not a bug, but eats them

There’s nothing wrong with mixing things up a little every now and then 🙂

I nearly trod on this lovely little Spring Peeper (Pseudacris crucifer) while bug-hunting in the woods. Although I hear their chorus every spring, I’ve only come across one of these beautifully camouflaged frogs a handful of times, and I was very happy to have my camera with me for this encounter.

Also, I wanted to remind you that as of this weekend, I’m in the field and away for the rest of the month. I have posts lined up during that time, but I probably won’t be able to get to most of your comments and questions until August!

    Great photo. I come across these little guys all the time too but whats more interesting than seeing them is the call they make that can be heard clearly at night. Check out my post of this frog too:
