Treefrogs in amplexus

The heavy rains have brought amorous Cope’s gray tree frogs to the garden. It seems that embracing pairs of tree frogs are everywhere.

In the trees...

...in the water...

... and on land.

Their camouflage can be impressive. These frogs change the color of the skin to match their background.

A previous post describes their eggs and calls. This morning there were about fifty small rafts of eggs on a pond that is a little over a meter across.
