Green Tree Frog

There's definitely something with tree frogs and my sister. She's always the one who finds them. This time, it wasn't any tiny tree frog. This tree frog was big, and bright green! She screamed to me from the second story upon seeing the frog hopping around from wall to wall. I was really surprised to know that such frogs still exist in this continuously urbanizing area!



Probably the most green and elegant frog I've ever seen. I'd always wanted to spot and photograph a green tree frog like this, and was overjoyed it finally happened. Like the stick insect, it came looking for as well! Here's a shot of him on my hand.


I took him out into the rain and released him onto a plant for a couple of shots. I had my sister hold up the umbrella so that my camera didn't get wet!


The frog hopped onto a nearby tree, where I took one last shot of him and went back indoors. What a beautiful find. I'm glad these frogs are still able to survive and reproduce here.
