Notes

I had never seen anything like it--fifteen Pickerel Frogs sitting in the crevices and cracks of a cave, waiting out the winter weather alongside Cave Salamanders and Slimies, sitting 5-6 feet above the cave floor. None of the pictures turned out, as most frogs were pretty far back in the crevices.
