[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
There are lots of frogs and toads on TN, and here's my contribution. I believe this to be the common green frog, Rana clamitans. It is found all over Eastern Canada. They are about 9cm long. The green-ness can be even more marked than on this one. This should be a female: the male has a yellower throat and a bigger ear drum, I believe.
This little lady seemed to be on valium - all she would do is lazily blink as I stuck my camera right up to her.
As an class exercise in using Photoshop, I cropped this, used levels and hue, cloned out some extraneous twigs, and cloned out some white reflections.

Hi John,
