European Tree Frog - Hyla arborea

We were delighted last summer when we found this little Tree Frog (50 mm) hopping about on the ground near a pond in the open landscape. It’s a species only found in the southernmost part of Sweden where it is rare. It mostly stays up on the branches of low trees and bushes where they hop around looking for insects. During mating time in spring and early summer you can hear them at night calling very loudly from near some ponds here in the south.

The Tree Frog reach reproductive age at around 3 years and it can often live up to 9 years. It is a species generally found in south and central Europe.

This was captured with the camera handheld from a distance of ½ metre. It has been cropped and sharpened.

Hallo Ulla
Everything is special in this image. The green colour of the frog and the grass is vivid and so natural looking. The cute "smile" it has. The stripe through its golden eye to the opening of its nostril. The almost "cheeky" pose and most of all those big rubbery paws. Thanks for sharing a delightful image. Best regards.

Hello Ulla,
such a lovely view and excellent presentation. The moist creature is so fine in its clarity and sharpness.
I like the special pose it gives you, with the dark eye well enhanced. In my cases they would have jumped.
Well composed view.
