We have Green Tree Frogs in our area, little green frogs that I often see in the bushes or under the porch light at night. They sometimes like to sit inside the mailbox during the hot part of the day in the summer, startling me by jumping out when I reach for the mail. I’d hardly seen any frogs this year until today.
After supper I went out to take a few pictures in the lantana patch on the side of the house. I saw leaves rustling and thought it was an anole, but when I looked carefully I saw a tiny Green Tree Frog, no more than 1/2 inch long. Because this was a shady part of the yard and the sun was setting, the light wasn’t very good. I pushed up the ISO and used a wider f/stop than usual. Settings were f/5, 1/50, ISO 800.
Then I saw that there were at least two or three more little frogs in the same area, all very small and young. Settings were f/5, 1/60, ISO 800.
Another photo of a little frog. These frogs were so small that one could easily sit on the nail of my little finger. Settings were f/5, 1/80, ISO 800.
