Tiny Treefrog

I was in the garden and something went "hop!" near the basil. That's the only way I could have spotted this tiny little guy. He could sit on my thumbnail and not hang over the sides. This photo is about twice life size.

I THINK he's a newly-transformed Cope's Gray Treefrog, based on the warts and the paler spot under the eye--probably coming out of the rain barrel--but I can't be sure. He could be a Spring Peeper for all I know, though the head shape doesn't look quite right. He was so tiny, though...
