Frog Blob

I love the primordial look of this fellow but he is a bit of a blob and I never see him move when I’m up close. I could ‘coax’ him but feel badly bothering him when he poses so cooperatively.

Can anyone identify?

    No idea who he might be, but quite a handsome fellow (in an amphibian sort of way).

    I have never seen a frog like this. May it be a grey tree frog (Hyla versicolor)? I’ve seen some pics and read that it is native of the eastern US and Canada.

    @Cristina, I was thinking gray too.
    @RoseMarieGardener – Does he have yellow underneath his back legs? Now I’m on a mission. This is one of my favorite things to do. Identification.

    I’m convinced it’s a Hyla versicolor. What do you think after looking at the photo?

    Some of my more favorite childhood memories was closing my eyes and listening to the tree frogs at night. It’s a free concert and nothing relaxes me faster.

    Yes!…..last night I was told it was a tree frog, cristina. Fhaith, I saw no color on the frog; I did not handle him for want of not wanting to disturb so I didn’t see his belly this time. I was told they make almost a ‘quacking’ sound….unlike peepers which in my neck of the woods, is our Spring lullaby. Thanks for all your effort here, Fhaith.
    And I agree, sheepandwool….he has amphibious charm.
    I also think he looks like a lichen that grows on one of my garden rocks.

    Whatever he is, he has really good camouflage!
