Last night, I spent a few hours in some flatwoods ponds after a much needed day of rain. I was pleasantly surprised to find eight herp species, with five that were actively calling. The two frog species below were new species for me.
Ornate Chorus Frog (in brown phase; this was the only Ornate Chorus Frog I heard all night, and it took a long time to track him down)
Southern Chorus Frog (Pseudacris nigrita)
Cottonmouth (out of water on a cool night made this a pretty docile snake)
