Rana septentrionalis (mink frog)

A mink frog the from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan taken in the summer 1995. Its one of my favorite species of frogs. They are found primarily in the northern Great Lakes states and Canadian provinces from Minnesota and Manitoba to Maine and Nova Scotia. This shows one on the easiest recognized characteristics, spots on leg (rather than stripes found in green frogs). Taken with a Minolta X370 and a Tamron 60-300 SP (probably at 300mm, I don't know how I lived without exif data).
