I think your right, James. The size of the warts and sharpness of the nose says "cricket". The glare of the flash seems to have hidden a faint triangle between the eyes.
I'll change it to Southern Cricket based on the length of the femur and it did have a cleaner stripe under the thigh.

you sure this isn't a cricket frog? Cool to see some north MS records on here.
