Profile of a treefrog

Here's another shot of our little Emerald-spotted treefrog. The spots come up quite irridescant under the flash. This was the last shot of 8 or so, as he wasn't digging the flashes or the proximity of the macro lens.

    Perhaps I shouldn't project emotions onto amphibians, but he looks a little worried here. Too much flash action for one little froggy! Love those green spots.

    Not sure they'd be interested. After all, it's only a wee little froggie.
    Aye, I think he was somewhat worried by this stage. We left him alone after this.
    I saw him again tonight, on the wall of the house (above dog height).

    Excellent, those emerald spots are amazing. The feet and toes are very interesting as well. Lovely shot.
    Seen in my contacts' photos. (?)

    Apart from the emerald spots, the feet are a big help in identifying him. Long toes on this variety of treefrog :)

    Poor little chap's not enjoying being your model by the looks of things. A wonder he didn't hop away!

    We let him be after this shot. :)

    I suspect he was doing the poor animal "if I stand really, really still they won't know I'm here and they'll go away"
    Of course, it worked, because we took pity on him and did go away :)
    Clever froggie ;)
