Frog Sex on the Beach at Laurel Lake

Back in PA for family events/reunions, I went hiking with my cousin.  Afterwards, we stopped by Laurel Lake; I wanted to jump in since it’s been five years since my last swim and because it was 90 degrees with humidity.  The water was cold, as expected; I lasted a few minutes.

We did not expect all of the mating frogs on the beach, though. In all my times going here over the course of twenty-five years, I’d never seen it.  Caught it at the right time, I guess:

lots of eggs
some pairs had a string of eggs that was 3-4 feet long
saw something like 20 pairs of mates
