Bubble nest frog

Raorchestes chalazodes

Description:

A macro image of the one of the most beautiful eyes of the animal world. This particular frog was on my wish list ever since i saw a photo in 2013. A critically endangered species, these frogs are very rare and have a very unique breeding behavior. They breed inside a reed. They only come out to feed. It was very tough finding and photographing it.

Habitat:

Ochlandrae reeds
