Description

My first instinct for this one was southern cricket frog -- because I've seen *so many* at Grand Bay; that being said, this individual gives me pause and I'm not sure I can peg down why. There were innumerable frogs calling at this time (it had just rained a few moments before and I was on a deck walk over the marsh). I can't differentiate this individual's call. (I need to start recording this stuff). Any responses? Gut instincts? Experienced veterans of southeastern U.S. frogs? Sorry the photos aren't better. Best I could zoom with the light and no tripod!

UPDATE: I've been at this area repeatedly and time and again it's jammed with southern cricket frogs. I believe that's what this is, albeit a pale one. I'm tagging the observation accordingly, though I acknowledge there could possibly be something amiss.
