I recently posted a photo of two color variations of the Pacific Tree Frog. Today I stopped to *ahem* conduct a quality control analysis of blackberries once again and saw this gem :) I'm wondering if I caught it in the process of changing (they do change like chameleons) or if this is another color variation that isn't depicted in my field guides. In any case, I think it's pretty cool :)
I went camping in the mountains (Snoqualmie Pass WA) over the 4th of July. Right around sunrise I was sitting on the bank of the river having my coffee when I saw something out of the corner of my eye jump into the water. I ran back to camp to grab my camera and when I returned, I got lucky:
These are common along the Seattle waterfront. They nest under the piers and are always out and about, oblivious to humans. I caught this male courting a lady in March by Pier 57 (ferris wheel pier :) ).
