American Tree Frog

I don't know what's been going on the last few days, but I've been seeing green tree frogs everywhere.

Relaxing in a little puddle on a cabbage leaf in the garden (photo above). Inside the hummingbird feeder moat. On the back porch. Stuck to a window outside the kitchen. I even saw one today wedged between the back hatch and the body of our SUV  ... I wonder if he rode all the way to town and back with me earlier in the day?

The American Green Tree Frog (Hyla cinerea) is one seriously cute frog. 

Green Tree Frogs are often bright green (although they can range from emerald green to a yellow-olive green color) and they have a white stripe along their sides and jaw. They only get to be about 2 inches long. But that's 2 inches packed full of pure ADORABLENESS!

Green Tree Frogs are found from Florida up north through Virginia and Maryland and as far west as Texas.  They like areas with a lot of floating vegetation and are often found near ponds, lakes, marshes and streams.

We certainly have tons of them here.

And that makes me happy.
