With the mail

When I collected the mail today I found the box occupied not only by mail, but also visitor that I am sure didn't arrive with the postie.

 The weather has changed to not only wet but cold so this character found quite a good spot to keep a bit warmer. One of our regularly seen tree frogs, Peron's Tree Frog Litoria peronii are common throughout NSW and across the borders into Qld & Victoria. Their colouring is quite variable from greyish through to dark brown with their most striking colouring being yellow and black markings behind the thighs, groin and armpits and the emerald green spots not always as evident as on this guy.


  1. Lovely photo Ian and what a striking looking tree frog. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Really nice specimen - one where you can actually see the green spots.

    1. Yes Denis the spots on this guy were very evident, where as other times you can hardly see them.
