Today I’m looking for assistance from nature enthusiasts out there – what species is this??
I’ve decided that it’s time to give up the “Monday Mystery,” at least for a while. In case you haven’t noticed, I rarely get it published on Monday, and I even more rarely deliver the answer on Friday! It turns out that summer evenings and weekends are pretty full of outdoor adventure, and I don’t have much patience for sitting indoors plugged into the computer. Maybe it’s a coincidence, but I’ve noticed that some of the other blogs out there that I’ve found most interesting have slacked on recent postings as well – perhaps we’re too busy enjoying the flora, fauna, and recreational potential of our various lands to spend much time writing about it. So – I’ll keep writing, but won’t promise to adhere to any deadlines!
That said, I have one more mystery – and this one I need help solving, myself! That’s right, I don’t have the answer, and I’m hoping that some of my naturalist readers out there will be able to provide some insight.
I saw hundreds of these tiny frogs – or toads? – last weekend in northern Wisconsin. They were as small as my little pinkie nail – 1/4 of an inch or so. It was in a dry oak-pine woods, with rather sandy soil, next to a small, shallow lake.
Anyone?? I have some more photos, but I think this is the best array.
