Am not cent percent sure, but i guess this is an American Green Frog (Rana clamitans). I found this frog at the same place and on the same day when i photographed that American Bullfrog (Rana catesbeiana) i posted before. To be more precise, a lot many Bullfrogs and this single Green Frog were seated close to each other in and around that tiny waterbody, officially known as 'Frog Pond' :D

American Green Frog (Rana clamitans) is native to the eastern part of the United States and Canada.

I found this beautiful and relatively large frog in the Broad Meadow Brook Wildlife Sanctuary, Worcester.

this is really beautiful frog. nicely taken in low angle. good work.

Hi Ruby! How are you doing? Good to see your picture after some passage of time.
This green and copper Frog is a handsome fellow. You have captured it very well in the ambient light at a damp and wooded location in New England. The old wood stump with different intensities of light on it provides an authentic and apt background for this capture.

Ciao Ruby,
Bellissima rana con dettagli e nitidezza notevoli. Well done.

Dear Ruby,
I like your green frog very much and add it to my theme "F r o g s".

Lots of sharp details make your photo interesting, and the luminous colours make it a pleasure to view the image.

Thanks for sharing.

Hallo Ruby
Excellent eye contact with good focus and sharpness of detail.
The colour and textures of the skin show well and the frog is well placed in the frame. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Ruby,
Looks like a Green Frog to me since it has the lateral ridges running down the back, unlike the Bullfrog who is smooth skinned with the ridge running down and around the ear.
You have captured this little beauty from a nice low POV and obtained excellent detail as well as beautiful colors. Like your Bullfrog it also has a tiny bit of Duckweed sticking to it's body. I really like viewing it in it's natural habitat. Great job!!
Hope your summer is going well for you!!!

Hi Ruby,beautiful capture of this frog whit a great choice of point of view and special sharpness and colors,i can see very well the small leafes too on its body thanks at your fantastic details! Very well done,have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano

Hi Ruby. Very nice shot. I think there's too much space behind him though. Other than that; the frog is perfect with great focus strong colours and details. I like the lighting too. I assume you used a flash. A beautiful green FROG! Well done! TFS Trevor
