08.19.2022 Frog Friday-Ah Youth

While jockeying for position between the two Frog Friday shots of August 5, I spotted this young and colorful bullfrog sitting a few feet away from the larger and more mature frog.

Female bullfrog-Lithobates catesbeianus in Poor Farm Swamp on August 1, 2022.  Those are three Lily pad planthopper nymphs to her right.  It always amazes me that they wander frog-occupied lily pads with apparent impunity.  Guess they just aren’t bullfrogs’ cup of tea.

  4. Very nice, the texture and subtle colors on the skin of this frog. I rarely see a frog around here in this irrigated glorified desert.

    He looks like he’s biting his lip. I wonder what he’s thinking that he doesn’t want to say?

  8. It’s very handsome. I guess I’ve never seen a youngster before as a two toned frog is new to me 😊

    I don’t know that I’ve ever noticed one with such yellow arms and legs. That’s fascinating. Great find, and very nice pose.
