I know I have written several blog posts in reference to the American Green Tree Frog this summer (I will leave links below) but it seems like I come up with more photos of these fascinating amphibians I want to share with you. You have to admit, this photo of the Green Tree Frog peeking around the blade of grass is really cool. The lighting and composition make for an interesting shot.
The second photo of a Green Tree Frog lounging in the center of a Lotus leaf is something I don’t get a chance to photograph often. I did share a similar shot before, but this one is unique in its own way. I love how the frog’s green skin blends into the leaf.
I enjoy photographing these little American Green Tree Frogs because you never know what pose you will find them in. They can be elusive and camouflaged in the greenery, so every sighting feels special. I’m always afraid that something could happen to these fragile creatures, and I may never see one again. That motivates me to photograph them while I can.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this look at my recent encounters with the Green Tree Frog.
