Story Behind the Photo: Greenhouse Frog

August 07, 2013  •  1 Comment

While this photo may not suggest it, Greenhouse Frogs are in fact tiny. This one is only about the size of a quarter and had taken a dip in the pool before posing for this photo. Greenhouse frogs are one of the most common frogs in Florida and live anywhere that is warm and humid, as the name 'greenhouse' suggests. Fully grown they are about an inch long and are easily recognized by their chirpy song-like calls. This particular frog and it's family lives under a plant on my patio and sing most humid nights, or when the plants are freshly watered.

Beautiful photograph, rich in colour and textures. Great to have such photogenic subjects living under a plant on your patio. We enjoy your tweets about your stories behind the photo and regularly catch up on your photography blog. Thank you Elizabeth, great work here.
