  California Treefrog  
  At night at a small pond in San Diego County, California, U.S.A. After I make an imitation of his call, a male frog repeatedly makes his encounter call while aggressively moving towards the camera until he finally hops away. A Red-spotted Toad and other CA Treefrogs are heard in the background.
