Hi Erwin

Too little time and too much to do before the holidays so just a quickie for now.

This is the nest of a Foam Nest Frog - Chiromantis xerampelina.
The foam insulates eggs from the heat and cold, keeping them moist and safe from
other predators. Normally these are built in trees which overhang pans. Well seen
and captured.

Well done and TFS.
