Not quite the right green
I noticed a small frog on a giant ragweed leaf a few days ago. It was not quite the right shade of green. From the information on the Indiana DNR website, it appears to be an eastern gray tree frog (Hyla versicolor). This little fellow can change color to match its background (at least if the background is gray, brown, or green). They are arboreal and nocturnal, so they may be fairly common even if they are not often seen.
