Smiley Boy... (Litoria Chloris) by 


Photos taken with Canon IXUS 80 IS and minor editing with Lightzone. SIMPLICITY is my niche!
My brother’s backyard in Tambourine Mtn QLD Australia

Litoria Chloris (Red-eyed green tree frog)

This little guy is really a little guy; he’d just about fit into a matchbox, but the noise generated from such a small creature is astounding – in fact, it is deafening! There were half a dozen frogs present at the time, some enjoying a swim in the pool, but this little fellow was on the glass of the pool fence, hence the reflection. He looks like he’s checking himself out in the reflection… or testing the water for a bit of a dip himself; the glass certainly has a fluid-like quality about it… or perhaps he’s wanting to eat one of the little, blue fishies. Regardless, he looks so happy :D ( PS: Angie Davies, a fellow bubbler, said “he looks like he is ready to dance in a chorus line of a Broadway play.” Thanks Angie, you may be right! )

With the exception of very ‘minor’ colour saturation and contrast adjustments, gentle sharpening and some cloning of a blue blotch, this photo is pretty much straight out of the camera. I didn’t have to do much to it. The photo was taken at night with flash, and is a good effort (even if I do say so myself) considering the camera is just a ‘point and shoot’. I rarely do night photography; it’s just too bloody dark LOL, but I’m glad I made an effort on this occasion.

I love anything that is unusual, unique, or just plain odd, and that’s the sort of image I try to capture. I’m so far from being the world’s best photographer it’s not funny, but I do have the photographer’s ‘eye’ and am more than proficient at capturing the images I see in my world. Thanks for taking the time to view my portfolio. Feel free to leave a message and say G’day.

    Oh this is soooo cute, love the look you have captured he looks like……what are you looking at and more to the point who are you. LOL :-)

  • Thanks Linda. He is a cutie, isn’t he. I think I blinded him with my flash, so if he’s saying anything, it’s probably ‘bugger off!!!’… and he’s probably thinking worse than that. Cheers :D

    Ditto – amazing! Who would think a frog could cock his head like that! Another brilliant shot in the series – I’m enjoying viewing them all!
    Cordially, Ellen

  • That’s a wonderful comment. Thanks Ellen. He is cutie, and I learned more about frogs in those couple of hours than I have in a lifetime. They contort in all sorts of ways. I was amazed :D
