Cuban Treefrog (Osteopilus septentrionalis)
Cuban Treefrogs are large, noisy, and common in South Florida. This fails to explain why I had never seen one in my numerous visits to the area over the years. Thanks to Dick Bartlett and Jake Scott for giving me some specific ideas about where to look. I ended up seeing a half-dozen or so, but this was the only one down low enough to pose for a decent photo.

Cuban Treefrog (Osteopilus septentrionalis)
This is an invasive species, which does not belong in South Florida. But it sure is a fine-looking frog.
