This green frog blends in well with the color of the surrounding duckweed, and can easily go unnoticed. What commonly gives its presence away is its high, reverberating chirp or an occasional hop.

He sure blends in – wow, you have pond lilies already – ours will be a little while yet, more like late June or July, despite this hot weather. I hear the bullfrogs at Council Point Park when it is still quiet and no people there, yet I never see them, just hear the occasional splash.
Yes, the water lilies are already budding. They won’t bloom for a while yet. I love to hear the frog’s chorus. There’s no other sound like it! Even the big frogs are hard to spot. These tiny frogs aren’t much more than an inch long, so you really have to search for them.
What a perfect camouflage! 👍
Very true! As long as they hold still, it is almost impossible to spot them. This one was crawling along the log and chirping, which drew our attention to him.
Wow! That’s a great finding. 😊
