What Frog is This Who Lies at Rest...

Check out this little critter:

Here he's (she's?) sitting on the edge of my rain barrel, & that ginormous green thing next to him is a 5/8" diameter garden hose- he's maybe all of 1/2" long hisself.
I'm thinking it might be a spring peeper, but I don't know what he'd be doing around here in late August.
Any guesses?

I'm pretty sure that this here is a Gray Tree Frog. The main marks are the rough skin (makes it look a little like a toad), gray color, and that yellow tinge to the inside of the hind legs. Adults are small but not THAT small -- this 'un is probably a young'un.

I think you nailed it WW.
Armed w/your info, I did a search, & thar he be.
