Eastern Dwarf Tree Frog, Litoria fallax, also known as Eastern Sedge Frog or Green Reed Frog discovered
(11 April 2011) along with a few friends, resting on Agapanthus leaves at my home at Batemans Bay, on the
south coast of New South Wales, Australia
.

Another wonder of nature I have not seen before, but hope to see some more. These tiny frogs are about
15 to 20 millimetres long. They have not disappointed, hiding from sight over Winter and returning in Spring.

I love the endless photographic opportunities provided by world around me, from the abundance of nature in my own backyard to historic and scenic worldwide destinations.
I am retired, beyond threescore years and ten.

    A great little visitor, Trish, and a nice shot if it. From time to time we have them calling in the backyard but I have not seen one, yet. They are very common around the lagoon which is around a kilometre away. I hope you get to see them more often.

  • Thanks so much Andrew ! We have seen a couple of other varieties on rare occasions, including in the pool on really hot nights and often hear them.
    I can’t think where the water might be for the tadpoles though.

    Oh, I meant to add that they seem to like frequenting Agapanthus.

  • Thanks ! We’ll keep our eyes open ! I have plenty of Agapanthus for them :)
    Peter had a look yesterday and saw a bigger frog which disappeared rapidly.

    Hi Trish, a very cute little frog indeed! :) I’ve found them in my garden too, they seem to love sitting in the Cliveas, Agapanthus and I’ve even found them in the passionfruit vine.

    The last week or two I haven’t seen any? Not sure if it has to do with the weather getting cooler.

    Gabe :)

  • Gabe, thanks so much for your comments and fave !
    It was a lovely surprise to find them enjoying a bit of time in the sun :)
