These things used to amaze me when I was a kid wandering the Catskill woods. These days they still do, if I am lucky enough to see one.

Not that easy to spot when they don't move...

A little easier when you sneak up and get a close shot.

Nature and camouflage...its remarkable how well these things do it. CJ

That's cool. CJ. It's great to stop and see the nature and interesting life around you while your out fishing. We have peeper frogs where I am and I have yet to actually see one although they appear to be within inches based on the noise they make.

Sometimes theres more to it than just racing to the stream to fish.

I'll be honest..never remember seeing those..are they like those endangered owls in the movie"dumb and dummer"? .. Albeit, frackers will tell you one thing for now but when coal is gone btu etc. Obama and kind are going to track for your heating nsa emergency..and I'm sure they have it under control..suks but this isn't rocket science..wish it could have been different

My meaning,it's only a matter of time frogs,fish..many native species will be subjected to gas fracking. First they do away with coal as they are doing..than they rule fracking as a national security issue IMHO

Don't know about the owls in the movie, but they are not endangered, especially considering how adept they are at hiding in plain site.

I cant begin to estimate how many of these I have seen over the years, but if you walk through deciduous forests, they are common. CJ
