Later in the day we traveled to another part of Okefenokee NWR, and I found another sleeping treefrog, this one green. The sure way to identify this species is by a series of yellow/orange spots on the normally concealed part of the thighs. This frog was sleeping in a pose where these spots were just barely visible.

After dark, wandering around the campground with a flashlight, I found another Pine Woods Treefrog in yet another color: brown.

This species is quite variable in color. This gray one is the first individual I ever saw, sleeping on a small stump near a boardwalk.

I had to include one more of these frogs, just because it was so humorously fat. Lots of bugs to eat in the swamp. I hope it enjoys mosquitos.
