Spring Peepers

It was loud! my ears were ringing for hours after. They're hard to see, and they go quiet when you approach their area. But if you sit still in your waders for 10-15 minutes they all start to emerge and sing around you.

Awesome pictures. Cool to see the peepers' vocal sacs fully inflated.

I love these pics! Thanks for sharing. And it is neat that on the first two pics, you can see the characteristic "x" on their backs.
