I feel like this should go under critters but there isn't an amphibian section so it's going here. Feel free to move it if I missed a better spot.

I was out enjoying and taking pictures of flowers when I ran into this little guy. Amazing camouflage and so cute, I had to share.

Hah, Phil. True but he was moving so fast initially I was afraid I wouldn't catch him at all so I went with video. Then he thought he was safe and stopped. I snapped it quickly and he was off again and into the bushes.

Ha ha, took me more than a minute to find it. But, oh, so pretty! I love frogs.

Tonight on my way back from chores, I saw a Red Legged frog -Rana Aurora, by the creek. I was so glad, as this is my first spotting for this year. They are endangered, and we’re always afraid we will never see them again☹️.

I took this picture of the baby plums on my tree. It's crazy how well they hide this time of year. Realized there is a theme here (even the colours) so adding to this thread.

I found a frog in my room on a morning a few weeks ago. All night I had been hearing something, but I didn't know what.

The previous day I had been hosing my garden, which is something I don't do often but we had had a very dry spell. The outside door I had left open for a spell, because the hose pipe went through it. Then it finally started to rain, and I also liked the door open to enjoy the rain.
I guess I wasn't the only one liking the rain; there was a loud frog concert that evening, and some creatures will have jumped places where they didn't jump before.
So I found this one in a flower pot, next to a baby squash I was growing. I carried it back to the waterside - still seemed to me a better place for it.
The frogs in the previous pictures took me slightly less time to find!

Almost stepped on this one playing in the river the other day. Didn't see it until it moved.

Finally I get to play in this thread as a contributor! I was out getting water at the faucet on the side of the house this evening. If they hadn't jumped, I never would have seen them. I immediately thought of this thread. The first one is fairly difficult, and there are two frogs in it. The second picture I consider very challenging, and there is one frog in it.

I want there to be a "click on the frog" game feature in this thread!  Thank you everyone.  
The last picture I tried to take of a frog was a serious no go....he just kept jumping away.

Since I don't generally carry a camera when I'm climbing my orchard ladder to pick Scarlet Runner beans that are 10 ft off the ground, I can't post pictures of the two tree frogs that were basking on leaves up there. I need to go picking again, so maybe I could risk the camera and see if they're still there.

I think I see it about half way from the center of the photo towards the top right corner.
