Pipsqueak Frog

This little pipsqueak of a frog would fit on your thumbnail!

It saw me and was ready to leap away at any hint that I might try to eat it. By moving very slowly, I was able to focus the camera and get a couple of shots before it either moved or my eye just lost it. They are extremely hard to spot when they hold still!

    Great shot, Kyle! I love how this little guys (or girls) bright green color contrasts with the mud.

      Thank you, Josh. You would think it would be easy to spot with that color scheme, but the rest of it exactly matches the mud – and the mud, viewed from standing height, has greenish patches of algae – which perfectly matches the green of the frog! So it is completely camouflaged when it holds still. I appreciate the comment and I am glad you stopped by :-)
