Twelve years ago I photographed my first little exotic frogs. It has since become an addiction. Now, once or twice a year I visit my friend, Patrick Nabors, to photograph his tiny reptiles. I recently put together a collection of images that have not been published before. The little guys never fail to put a smile on my face. I hope they will do the same for you.
Some frogs just naturally climb when given the opportunity. That makes for some fun pictures as they maneuver their way around flowers and plants. The Tiger-leg Monkey Tree Frog is a very active climber as you can see.

Red-eyed Tree Frogs are another that climb showing off their beautiful colors as they do.
The Lemur Frog isn’t as willing, but he will go out on a limb. The Giant Monkey Tree Frog climbs although he’s a little heavy for most of my flowers and plants.
Then there are those who prefer to just sit and look pretty or in some cases interesting. The ones in the images below are collectively known as “Big Eye Frogs” but they are individual species.
Some of the frogs are very tiny, perhaps an inch to an inch and a half. An Hour Glass Frog is curled up in the rose. The colorful Poisonous Dart Frogs have a wide range of colors. The Blue Dart Frog is one of the larger ones. The white, spotted frog is a Reed Frog.
There are over 5,000 species of frogs in the world. Some of them are a bit odd looking like the Yellow Leaf Frog and the Mossy Toad.
The pair of Milk Frogs and the Emerald-eyed Frog mostly just sit doing a good job of looking pretty cute,
The Oriental Fire-bellied Toad’s orange belly is a warning to his foes that his skin can be toxic. They always seem to be exhausted. There are many times when I can identify with the second one. 🙂
I hope you’ve enjoyed visiting with the frogs! As always I love to hear your feedback and comments. Thanks for joining me, Cheryl
