I'm not even going to try to pretend to i.d. them, though.
It occurred to me that someone with a bee phobia might freak out a little, walking among such buzzing,
Finally, frogs have been on the move, hopping out of the way of my feet as I walk in the woods, or along the river and pond. But this pickerel frog (Lithobates palustris) sat nice and still for me to snap its photo and I finally sat down to learn the difference between it and the northern leopard frog (Lithobates pipiens).
The leopard frog is usually green (though it has a brown phase), while the pickerel is coppery brown. The leopard's spots are more rounded while the pickerel's are more square and arranged in two neat rows down the back (as you can see below), while the leopard's are more randomly arranged. Finally, the ace in the hole is that the pickerel has bright orange-yellow coloring under its hind legs. I didn't pick this one up to check, but based on the other characteristics, I'm going with pickerel.
