    First unknown spider

    I think the first unknown spider in the first post after the Lycosidae is a Clubonia sp. and possibly Clubonia riparia ??? It definitely looks like a Clubonia though. The Dolomedes may be Dolomedes scriptus.

    Very nice photos. What camera did you use??

    the frog actually looks like a green frog, or a juvie bull frog, google the the two of them you'll find tons of stuff about them, i did a project for school on both of them. green frogs are a pretty cool species, we caught eggs and hatched them out and released them, pretty cool project
