3 Frogs, Tree Frogs

Three different Pacific Tree Frogs from the weekend. All very cute, and very different. Check it. Pacific Tree Frogs can have some pretty varied colors and even a bit different patterning, too. The most common color we see is the bright green. So it was cool to see these three different shades in a short period of time.

how did you get them to stay still for you?

When I was young in Borneo, in the evening, we used to go with Grand dad to look for frogs. It wasn't easy, the frogs knew we were coming.

More times than not, they don't sit still. But every once in a while there's some that feel like having their photo taken I guess! :)

Awww, I'm a total frog Lover.
These shots are way good! What Posers :D

diane said...

I just love frogs. They are great pics. I saw your comment on Denise's blog. You like snakes. You can come and shoo mine out of the garden.

Woody said...

What a great collection! The first one looks like he's leaning on his elbow, about to tell you a story.

Naturegirl said...

Great photography of the tree frogs! I love the look of their back legs! Here we don't have the tree frogs just my pond frogs who have not surfaced yet..I am anxiously waiting I name them each year..last year it was William..when they arrive in my pond and garden space I know that all is balanced as it should be with my soil.

JM said...

I always am amazed at your photos! The frog pose on top is fantastic!

Michael said...

That is a cool shot of the nearly submerged frog. Love it.

Clytie said...

Fantastic pictures - love the whimsical title - 3 Frogs, Tree Frogs. Perfect!

Phil said...

Cool dudes keeping cool. Nice pictures Jill

Martha Z said...

Great shots Jill. The first year we lived here they were all over the place. Now that I am blogging, I haven't seen any.

Carver said...

What a wonderful group of frogs you shot. I have a thing about frogs. I have a lot of frog sculptures in my garden but I wish I had some real ones. Actually ages ago I did have a frog that hung out in a wet area of my garden but after that no others found the way here.

jason said...

What cool variation. It fascinates me when a species has such variety in appearance. And these are fun shots, Jill! Beautiful and smile-inducing (well, frogs always induce a smile for me, but anyway...).

Miguel Martinez said...

Hermosas fotos.

SandyCarlson said...

I like these hambone frog dudes. Great shots.

Colleen said...

Great frog shots! Just today, I was thinking that it would be fun to find a frog to photograph. Found a blue tailed skink instead. He was awfully cute and may show up in a post one of these days.

Pam said...

They are amazing shots, Jill. I like all the different colors and details. I couldn't imagine being kissed by one but they are kinda cute :)

Dominic Gendron said...

Wow great post...all images are awseome! The images of those frog are all very well composed and exposed...GREAT work ;)

Carolyn Ford said...

These guys are really adorable and you captured them so beautifully. A couple of images look like they are ready to leap right on your lens. Once again, I am amazed at what you find...I am never disappointed when I see your post!

Mama Zen said...

These are fantastic!

SquirrelQueen said...

Great shots, I really like the different colors. I think frogs are so interesting but I rarely see one in this area.

Kala said...

Just love frogs and these shots are awesome. When I go hiking, I hear them in the ponds, but I can never FIND them.

Spiderdama said...

So cute! And your shots are so good!
Wish you a happy weekend:-)

Kathy said...

Great pictures. That's the only way I want to see a frog -- in a picture. You don't want to hear why!

Jama said...

That first froggie looks curious.

i beati said...

They get quite close and personal don't they ?? ha sandy

Snap said...

Amazing shots. I love frogs and toads ... they tell us so much about our environment. Love their singing, too!

frayedattheedge said...

Brilliant photos!!

Ralph said...

These amphibious reptiles have a beauty all their own, and you have captured them nicely. The green and tan skin looks artistic when viewing not just them, but their shadows and reflections...

A Garden of Threads said...

Great shots of the frogs. Love the one just with its' face surrounded by water. Have great weekend

Martha said...

Your photography is always SO amazing!!!

Gardening in a Sandbox said...

Good photos! I am waiting for a frog or maybe a toad to find our new pond this year. That will make my day. Valerie

eileeninmd said...

Jill, cool shots of the frogs.

Hootin' Anni said...

Some super excellent photography you've got going here!!

Here are my entries for the day.

~3 Sides of Crazy~ said...

Awesome shots - frogs are so interesting!

Anna said...

I love them. They're so cute!

Greyscale Territory said...

Amazing macros of the frogs! And those eyes are huge and haunting! Beautifully captured!

Dimple said...

We have what looks like the same variety of frog here, also. They're really cute, and I like listening to them sing. Well, I guess they croak, but in a high pitched voice! Sometimes I find them hiding in my rhubarb.

LadyFi said...

What tiny, delicate and lovely creatures. Amazing photos!

nonizamboni said...

aDORable faces! And really nice captures all. Thanks for sharing your talents.

Vicki said...

I can spend hours trying to photograph frogs and still end up with bubbles. Great photos.

Jayne said...

What great shots - love that first one in particular. :)

foto CHIP said...

At least one of them must be a prince - did you check ?
awesome photos and frogs

Don't Bug Me! said...

Very cute indeed - I guess this is why I try to post photos of animals rather than flowers, even though I have many more flower shots. Animals just are cuter.

Sharon Wagner said...

I love the frog peeking out of the cloudy water.

Daniela said...

Hi hi , so cute and amazing photography.

jay said...

I love frogs, and these are great shots! I love the one in the water, and the last one, too!

Sistertex said...

LOL....they all look less than thrilled...but then frogs don't really smile do they. ;) Just kidding around. These are great! You always do such marvelous work.
Thanks so much for participating in this week's 'Face of the Week'. Love these guys!

joey said...

Is one a prince? Looking for a handsome mate for my eligible daughter :)

jabblog said...

I think these are just beautiful. Stunning shots!

James said...

Excellent shots. I never see frogs around here.

Rosidah Abidin said...

You really take wonderful macro shots of animals. Have a great day :)

cats of wildcat woods said...

Great frogs! While living in FL we had to be careful when we opened the front door - often there was a frog on the door knob!

ramblingwoods.com said...

They are the perfect little ambassadors for Save-The-Frogs Day. I have no idea how you get the photos that you do. Amazing...Michelle

bobbie said...

They are such sweet little creatures.
