I heart froglets

This morning, like most other mornings, I was looking around in the local foliage for lizards or other interesting creatures and I spotted the cutest little frog. Because of it's size and apparent youth, I was surprised that it was able to survive out of water... so I did a little research.
Turns out, the little fellow may have been a "froglet." Not a tadpole, but not yet an adult frog.

I wish I had gotten a better look to see if the tail had been absorbed yet but I will tell you this, he was small, slippery, and clearly breathing with his lungs. I am definitely looking for him tomorrow morning. So cute!
