An Interesting Find

I found this really beautiful frog sitting on my squash plant out in my front yard. But the camera couldn't even begin to pick up all its colors even at being a 1,000 bucks.

I am wondering though, what species of frog is it ?
I collected it and took some stills and released it.

color between green and brown tones in a few minutes. This color change is related to the temperature and amount of moisture in the air, not to the background color as is the case for most reptiles.

The photos you have sent in are of a "Pacific treefrog" which is the smallest but most commonly seen and heard frog in Washington. Individual treefrogs can color between green and brown tones in a few minutes.
