Gray Tree Frog at Eversley

Gray Tree Frog (Hyla versicolor)
I photographed this tiny frog sitting on a metal fence post in a field near the hamlet of Eversley, on Dufferin Street.   It is native to south-eastern Ontario, where it usually remains in treetops except when breeding and laying eggs in wet grounds.   As its scientific name (Hyla versicolor) suggests, The Gray Tree Frog can change its appearance from gray to green to camouflage itself against the background it appears upon.
Please comment if you wish.
