More frogs and nuptial pad

Over 25 frogs in the pond today, possibly more beneath the surface.
I intercepted this frog on the way to the pond and placed it in a container for a few minutes to have a closer look

This is a male. You can see the nuptial pads on the toe of the front leg. The frog uses these pads to help grip the female while mating.
