Green Frog, Rana clamitans

Very Green Green Frog

Green Frog
Green frog. No, not just a green frog, a very green Green Frog. Species Rana clamitans. This male is in fine breeding color. Males have a yellow throat as well as a large tympanum, about twice the size of the eye. Females lack the green throat and have a smaller tympanum. The green in this photo is not an artificial push from post processing; well, not much; the frog’s head is really that green. Handsome fellow. I think the reflection is a nice touch.
