The answer is D: Wood Frog (Lithobates sylvaticus). I photographed this creature in the middle of the night using a small camera and flashlight.  Even in poor lighting, the frog's characteristic dark face-patch is visible.  Another version of this photo appeared in New Moon Challenge: Wetland Loop Recap, along with an audio sample of Wood Frogs chorusing with one loud Spring Peeper.
