Green Treefrog, Hyla cinerea

I photographed this male Green Treefrog (Hyla cinerea) one night in Florida. It was a damp night and there were many other frog species enjoying the evening, including gray treefrogs and squirrel treefrogs. However, the most amazing sight that night was a fierce battle as a ribbon snake tried to eat another green treefrog. One of the most fascinating parts of the battle was that the other green treefrogs kept calling away as their colleague was attacked and eaten.
