Holding on tightly, this peacock tree frog shows just how clever he and nature is.

Thanks to everyone who clicked and moment end on yesterday's upload and especially to Qouise for her UA on The Matrix, and to Paul (skeet1away) for his UA on Harvest Mouse, they are both very much appreciated.

Hi there looking out at us! A super wildlife shot Mark. Love the direct look - nice detail and light in the eyes.

Anne

The only think I think might improve on this is the part of the frog's foot sticking out behind the plant stem - it doesn't have a distinct shape and only appears as a very light area in the composition - as I see it Smile
