This year's metamorph.
Males are oftenly blue during the mating period
We found this frog in our friends garden, which they were about to have the foundations dug for their new house. Hopefully it survived the building works.
The moor frog (Rana arvalis) is a slim, reddish-brown, semiaquatic amphibian native to Europe and Asia. It is a member of the family Ranidae, or true frogs.
