Taken last summer in Eastern Virginia. Some of these are pretty bad pics, I know. I also have an idea on a few of them, but wanted to see what others say.

Thanks for the leads! Any idea which of these would have been responsible for the screaming I heard? Some frog would shriek (it seriously sounded like a person) and then jump in the water. We never saw the frog, would just hear the scream and splash.

That's a Bullfrog, although I would describe it as a loud squeak. They make that sound as they jump, then disappear under the moss or partially bury themselves in the muck on the bottom.
