Smooth Green Snake and Gray Treefrog in Sheridans Rapids

MVFN NatureNotebook sighting and photos received August 2, 2017:

“The other day, I was filling a bird bath when I saw a bright thing coming out of the watering can; at first, I thought it was a leaf but I soon realized it was a tiny frog!! I rescued it and Nat took several pictures. It was about 1 inch long.
We also spotted a bright green snake, about 10 to 12 inches long.”

NOTE: Although the frog is green, the large, expanded toe disks and dark marking behind the eye, suggest it is a Gray Treefrog (Hyla versicolor). The snake is a Smooth Green (Opheodrys vernalis)
