Exposed by a bee

A short break from the usual invertebrate images…

Wood frog. Lithobates sylvaticus (LeConte, 1825)

Wood frog beside a log.

Normally hard to spot in the duff of theforest floor , wood frogs, Lithobates sylvaticus (LeConte, 1825) usually reveal themselves by movement. This one exposed itself when it jumped up to try to catch a low-flying bumble bee. It failed, but I succeeded. Found in the natural area beside Fultonvale School east of Sherwood Park. 4 June, 2016.
