Raganella (Hyla Arborea)



The Raganella is a small amphibian of a beautiful pale green color that lives near ponds, hidden among the vegetation, often rises in the trees, through the fingers fitted with suction cups. His sing is associated, in popular tradition, the announcement of Easter and the arrival of rain in times of drought. In the spring down in the ponds with water and rich in vegetation (wet meadows), to reproduce. The reduction of habitat makes the species Raganella not more common.


La raganella è un piccolo anfibio di un bel colore verde chiaro che vive nelle vicinanze degli stagni, nascosta fra la vegetazione, spesso sale sugli alberi, grazie alle dita munite di ventose. Il suo canto viene associato, nella tradizione popolare, all'annuncio della Pasqua e all'arrivo della pioggia se udito nei periodi di siccità. In primavera scende negli stagni con acque basse e ricchi di vegetazione (prati umidi), per riprodursi. La riduzione degli habitat rende la raganella specie non più comune.

Hello Sergio,

Your frog has a funny pose. It makes the photo very dinamic. You have focuse on it's head and showed it well. The colors are very nice. It is a fine contrast between the colors of the frog and the stem it is climbing on.

Thank you for sharing,
Cristian

Hello Sergio,
a beautiful capture of this acrobatic frog. The picture is nicely composed with the main activist
clearly standing out against the smooth and noise-poor background.
Colours are beautiful.
Best wishes, Peter
