Spring Peeper

It was supposed to rain last night, and it did after I got home. But I was still able to turn up half of my targets.

There were other things found too, herping bycatch if you will.

That second peeper shot is fantastic! Glad to see things moving, I'm still at least a month away. Dusty frogs are better than no frogs in my book.

Great finds and photos. Come on Spring. Is it possible to find a Spring Peeper in the daylight? I was in the middle of several loud ones yesterday and never was able to locate one.

I've been in the same situation and I can never find one during the day. I think finding them at night isn't really easy either, but the few I've ever found were always at night.
