Northern Leopard Frog

The other night I captured these photos of the Northern Leopard Frog (Rana pipiens).

While I'm happy with these shots, my efforts to capture video of any of the four Rana species at our local ponds was met with failure. They are too wary to allow close approach and stop calling. In Colorado, Joe Farah took a different strategy and came up with some neat video. He set the camera up on a good spot and walked away. Check out the results:

  2. I also want tosay where doyoufind the frogs

  3. This species, and many other Rana, can be found easily by walking around the edges of almost any wetland within their range. They like ponds with lots of vegetation at the edges, but can also be found along creeks, and even in ditches. They're versatile.
