Green Frog I don't know how this frog could tolerate the fly sitting on it's eyeball, but it didn't seem to mind. This small green frog was in a very stagnant woodland pool and was cold to the touch when I picked it up. It had slow reflexes and was easy to catch. Green frogs have dorsolateral ridges that run down the sides of their backs, which distinguishes them from bullfrogs, which lack them.

  1. The "fly" on the eyeball and the one next to the frog seem to be Springtails (Collembola).

    Frogs were my first love (after horses) in the discover world of my childhood. I do not know why I did not see the bugs then. So great you were able to hold him/her.

    As always, a great pic from you. Very talented.
