While walking the edges of Lemmon Lake in the late spring, dozens of these cricket frogs would leap ahead of me with each step I took. A literal wave of frogs would develop in front of me as I moved though the short vegetation along the lake’s shore.
Blanchard’s Cricket Frogs are said to be an important indicator of a wetland’s general health. If so, Lemmon Lake in the Joppa Preserve is doing just fine. There are plenty of these small (0.75 to 1.5in/19 to 38mm) frogs to be found there.
