Amplexus

Amplexus in gray tree frog, "Hyla versicolor" in late June in our biodiversity garden in Ontario. The male is on top. They remained in this mating position for the better part of the morning. The night before, we photo-documented five males calling in the area. Amphibians are in decline worldwide. It is heartening to know that our native tree frog is doing well, at least in our little neck of the woods.
