I know what you’re thinking, what’s with all the frogs lately? I swear it’s just circumstantial with all this rain we’ve been having throughout NSW. In fact, this tree frog is very different to the bright green ones I’ve been seeing in Byron lately. Although the Peron’s Tree Frog is found throughout NSW, this one was photographed in Yackandandah, Victoria. Taken at 3:15am (check the EXIF date stamp!) on new years morning which means I was fairly intoxicated when this photo was taken. I’m surprised it worked at all!
Notice the “emerald” spots on it’s skin and the orange legs and webbing. This species is also a kind of “chameleon” frog, that has the ability to shift it’s colour over an hour.
