More photographs of a Pacific tree frog

The other day I posted some classic white box photographs of a Pacific tree frog. By classic, I mean they featured the animal against a featureless white background. I shot another series of photos for my blog of that same frog, but with a more natural background. I used a pot of soil in which I have been cultivating a miniature garden of moss. The pot is meant as a hanging basket so it is wide and low—perfect as a backdrop for macro photography. All I had to do was put the pot inside the white box and place the frog in the pot. The rest of the set-up stayed the same.

Olympus OM-D E-M5; Zuiko 12-50mm ƒ/3.5-6.3 zoom; manual exposure (F11-16 @ 1/125 sec); Vivitar 283 flash and VP-1 Vari-power adapter (1/16 power); ISO: 200

Well, you can't please 'em, can you? I prefer the white box shots. There is just so much more FROG in them...

Tree Frogs always seem to be curious creatures. We are densely populated with Green Tree Frogs (Hyla cinerea), and finding a batch of them is always entertaining. Very passive, and seldom go straight to "escape mode"

Just the other day I flipped over a huge leaf from a Banana Tree to find about 5 little GTF juvies. A .75" baby looked at me, then started wandering closer and closer to inspect what was going on (my face). He/she ended up walking to the hand that was holding the leaf and continued to walk up my arm while constantly stopping to look at me during the trip. I let him walk onto my finger, I put him back under the leaf, and he scooted back into his little spot and yawned. I would love to have a habitat in the house, but they are loud enough outside.

Those are beatiful pics and a beatuful frog. Personally I like both sets of shots the second set being preferable to my tastes but both very stunning photographs. Great Job
