Hyla regilla, otherwise known as the Pacific Tree Frog


I quote from the BC Frog Watch fact sheet on the Pacific Tree Frog, "The Pacific Treefrog is a very appealing little frog, and quite common in B.C. They are small frogs, up to 5 centimetres long, and may be any colour from pale grey or tan to bronze or bright emerald green."
This member of the family was sunning herself ("Females are slightly larger than males, a feature common to most frogs") on the deck rail outside the studio.
