Parc Nature Bois de l’île Bizard, Montreal, August 2014
Moving into higher grass to take a shot of a female dragonfly, I saw something moving close to my feet. And there, sitting with perfect camouflage, a Northern Leopard Frog (Lithobates pipiens). This species is very difficult to spot, especially as frogs like to sit without moving, waiting on prey to pass. Fortunately, I was moving slowly giving him the chance to jump out of danger and then providing me the opportunity for a photo of another amphibian endemic in Canada.
