Small green frog on leaf

I saw this in S.E. Michigan. I assume it is a treefrog but I haven't figured out which one. Any thoughts?

I live in S.E. Michigan which is where I found it (yesterday) Here is another photo. I saw two frogs but one was a little smaller. Neither was bigger than a US quarter.

They are both juvenile Gray Treefrogs. However, there are two identical species of Gray Treefrog in Michigan - Gray Treefrog (Hyla versicolor) vs. Cope's Gray Treefrog (Hyla chrysoscelis), but the more widespread species is the Gray Treefrog (Hyla versicolor).

They can have varying amounts of green, particularly when small like that.

I would call these Hyla versicolor. If you have heard the adults calling, you can tell them apart.
