Found this beautiful pair up a Guava tree, braving the heavy rain. They were so cozy and comfy in their secret little perch, perfectly blending in with the surroundings.
The one on the left is the male and the other a female.
These frogs are so effective in blending in. Their perch is visible only from this little gap among the leaves! No other angle or a clearer picture was possible! But I cant ask for more. I am more than happy to have found these guys in the first place :-D
This was the first time I'd seen a Tailed Frog. I was photographing Pacific Giant Salamander neotenes in the pools of a long cascade of waterfalls in an old growth forest in Oregon (USA), when this beautiful light colored female swam right in front of my camera.
