Next, I heard the tree frogs. You cannot see them as they are clustered down by the wetland and in frogpond singing for love!
(These frogs I photographed last summer and fall.) They hang out at the house in summer, getting into plants and into my mailbox, once mating season is over.
They change colour, too!
I'd been digging in the garden, then went for a forest walk.
The tree frogs - their pitch is very high.

a few tadpoles, many spiders, and birds.
As I approached both the pond and the wetland, the tree frogs seemed to settle after I paused. The wood frogs, floating on the surface of the water, were pretty shy. They wouldn't start

The water striders are running about.

I took a walk down to the blog. You can hear the chirping of the wood frogs as well as the higher pitched tree frogs.
