Default The elusive Hyla arborea

After years of unsuccessfully following the quacking call of Hyla arborea across muddy fields in France I finally got lucky this year when one hopped onto the back of my chair. Some of my best field herping happens when I'm sitting with a beer in hand, minding my own business. I did find one in the boot of my hire car once but it doesn't count unless you know where it came from.

Growing up a kin naturalist in Dordogne, those guys drove me crazy!!!! My dad's cousin had a farm, and his reservoir was heavily planted with reed and you could hear them, but could I find them? Mostly no. As most man made reservoir the banks were very steep, and I got wet more often than lucky

And as always, stunning photography Mark.
