Mosquitoes beware, Pacific Tree Frogs are here!

We have tree frogs in the bog! The latin species name is Hyla regilla. This year we have had a bumper crop of tadpoles in the pond. On Thursday, I was told the frogs had started climbing out of the pond, so I went there to see. I found all the different life stages, except for complete tadpoles and tail-less frogs. The frogs are only about as big as your thumbnail, from head to toe.
