Walking through the woods I noticed this guy at eye level while looking at spiders.
Found both of these Spring Peepers very close together. Like within three feet and not that far along the trail.
Farm on outskirts of Barre City with old, spring-fed, disused watering pond for livestock.

Thought it was late in the season to be seeing a spring peeper but was a pleasant surprise none the least.
Picture is relatively unclear, but the specimen was a light brown in color with darker brown markings on its back. The markings on it's back had the distinctive X formation that the species is known and identified for. The individual pictured here is thought to be female
