Last weekend I went out to mow the lawn and happened upon this little Pacific tree frog (Pseudacris regilla). I scooped it up to save it from the mower and of course to take the opportunity to take some photos for my blog. I opted to take it into the house and photograph it in a white box. It would have been nice to have photographed it in its natural surroundings, but it wasnt likely to pose for me after being picked-up. Besides, I thought that the soft lighting of the white box would make for some nice pictures while the box itself would help contain the critter during the shoot.
No, they are really easy to catch when they are hopping on the ground. But when you find them on a branch near a pond they are really tricky...as soon as you try and grab them they leap into the water and vanish! But you often find them a long way from water...
I love pacific treefrogs! Its one of my dreams to catch and photograph every color variation. Where I grew up we'd have leopard spotted ones, green ones, copper, pearl sheen, brown, cream, and mixes. All of them were the same species, amazing.
My 20 gallon planted shrimp tank is my pride and joy!
Love it!! Pacific tree frogs are one of my favs after grey tree frogs.
