Well, Lithobates catesbeianus if you follow the dis-banding of the old, super-inclusive Rana.

I love seeing your photos. They often allow me to see some I haven't spotted in quite some time--such as toads or frogs.

I wish a had my camera the other day. There was a nice big black rat snake in our house. (Which I promptly picked up and tossed it out the door.) I found a extremely large insect, however I cannot begin to figure out what it is; thankfully THAT was outside.
