Amboli bush frogs - In amplexus

There were lots of Amboli bush frogs in the area we stayed in Agumbe. We were surrounded by loud calls.. But spotting them is a different story..

We found 3 pairs of Amboli bush frogs in amplexus. All of them were found on the ground.

The calling males were perched on leaves. 1 male was slowly approaching this pair in amplexus.

I found 1 male just observing another pair in amplexus from 3 inches away. He never made a move. Their agreement seemed to work ;-D

The female would occasionally move with the male on its back. But nothing much happened that night.

Description

This rare performance by this pair of beautiful frogs captured shot by shot and in sequence. The male is smaller than the female. They met on a coconut tree and both goes to the nearby well. The female goes down to the water and finds it unsuitable and goes away. I missed the the next events.

Description

Wouldn't have found this beautiful frog if not for his calls... So well camouflaged, only the red webbing on his feet gave away him away.

He would stop calling when I was trying to find where he was. Then I had to wait for another 10 mins or so for him to resume his calls. Eventually i found him, deep inside the bush, beautifully camouflaged and at peace :-)

Description

Last monsoon me and Anoop stumbled upon a little patch of froggy heaven in Coorg. It was a nesting site for Rhacophorus lateralis!!!

The male seen here just 1 among the many who were in the process of finding a mate and building nests last year.

There were many adults perched on leaves. But no nest building activity took place. Few males were calling and few were just contemplating.

All the females were just staring into the dark.

We knew our torch lights would be a disturbance to them if we hang around. So we quickly took a few photographs and waited for a couple of hours in the dark away from the nest site, listening to all sorts of frog calls. We had found tranquility then.

It was past mid night now, we had a quick check then we went back leaving the frogs in peace.

Very heavy rain and wind made the trip highly enjoyable.
