[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is from my archives, last time when I visited Kodanad , Anil arranged for a stay in a guest house and the weather was bit damp. So after dinner I wandered with my camera and flash and found this tiny tree frog which was about 2 cms in length

Happy Clicking,
Goutham R

Hello Goutham
Perfect capture with clear BG and beautiful colors. Excellent details too.

Hi Goutham,
2 cm is a very tiny frog,but then,most of our native New Zealand tree frogs aren't much bigger.
A beautiful little creature.
Nice capture.

Hello Goutham ,

Good (old) shot of this very tiny tree frog!
I can not help you to identify, I can only admire your shot!



Hi Goutham,

Not ID. But I have a confession that the photo is superb! ... Congratulations, you're a teacher with the macro and fill-in flash!

Neat little froggy G! You did excellent PP work to throw out the back and fore unless that is just you DOF but the sides too?? Very nicely framed!

Hello Goutham
great and unusual capture with fine details on this tree frog. Excellent contrast between the soft colors and green background. Great focusing.

Hi Goutham

Superb macro! While I cant tell you the species, I believe it is a bush frog of the genus philautus. For all you know it might be an undescribed species and quite likely endemic to the Western Ghats.


perfect capture, perfect frog. tfs
