While scouting a new location years ago with my friend @luksth in Ecuador, we found a Gliding Tree Frog. ⠀
I composed to include a halogen streetlight outside the lodge we were staying at and held a flash strategically behind to mimic the light from the fake moon. ⠀
Even though I took this at night and used flash, I shot wide open at f/2.8 to properly expose for the streetlight and to give more mood to the photo.⠀

Well she dressed to impress with that blue eyeliner. Hold on tight buddy. You got a winner. Great to see these two doing their bit to keep the Australian Lace-lid (Litoria dayi)off the endangered list. Listed as Vulnerable. #frogfriday#frogsofinstagram#wildtropics#wettropics

Stony creek #frogs ( #Litoria wilcoxii) doing their best to win the #FroggyStyleComp . Males of this species turn a stunning vibrant #yellow in the breeding season. I'll be investigating this species a little bit for my PhD to see how they contribute to the disease reservoir that's been killing so many #Australian frogs.
I’m here at @frogalleybrewing tasting this fantastic Mohop #14 - Sultana IPA. It’s a New England IPA with hints of pineapple and citrus. This beer is absolutely delicious and pinky up worthy. It’s a 6.8% ABV brew. It’s on the higher side but one can’t really tell because of the flavor. It’s very sneaky. If you want great brews and an atmosphere that’s on point 100%, one must check out Frog Alley Brewing. Cheer Insta Friends! 🍻

Crab-eating Frog was the only amphibian we saw during our Indonesian trip. This cool species can live in both fresh and salt water and is commonly found along the coastlines of South East Asia. A very nice species to celebrate @frogfriday
The Blue Mountains Treefrog (Litoria citropa) was the first NSW species Aaron showed me some 5 years ago.
Last #frogfriday we remembered Aaron's friendship, accomplishments and good times had on frogging trips. I had the pleasure of meeting his family and fellow froggers.
The following night Grant, @bushrat_booly@djjosiestyles, @alexjpike and I returned to go frogging at one of Aaron's stomping grounds. The rain stopped long enough and despite the 9°C, we got 13 species!
First things first, I'm back from my hiatus from Instagram... it lasted a week thanks to MLB spoilers finding their way to me anyway... ugh...I hate people. Anyway, not going to reveal anything here because I'm not a scumbag, but I definitely see the show in a different light.
Onto this guy now!! I found a roomie for Louie!! We were loading our empty shipping totes in the truck at work and this little green dude jumped out and into our receiving room! Got him home and he's now safe and sound in a warm tank 😊 We have no idea where he came from since we have no fields or wooded areas around us. He must've travelled far. Still needs a name :3
Oliver! You’ve been home for🥈months! 🎉🎊You’ve grown and settled in so much! Now you even choose to sit in my hand when eating 😭🧡 P.s. I’m aware that it’s preferred to use gloves when holding him. The gloves I have now are blue and noticed that he panics more when I have them on when picking him up so don’t come for me I love my son 😤🙄 #pacmanfrog#albinopacmanfrog#frogsofinstagram#pets
