Remember? Today is the Rock Flipping day!
It’s so dry and hot here, it is even dry and hot under the rocks in the woods. It took my daughter and me a long time flipping rocks to detect any sign of life and then it would be just a couple of ants quickly scurrying away, too fast to take a picture. Then we went down to the pond – and nothing there either, it’s THAT dry! Finally, we gave up and said, OK, just one more rock. And that’s where we found this frog. My camera cannot really do the close-up photography needed for this. I hope that someone here can still be able to recognize the species and play with binomial nomenclature in italicized Latin in the comments.
