Winged gliding frog

Rhacophorus lateralis

Description:

We knew how fragile the nesting site was. A couple of days break from the rain would dry up the tiny water filled pot hole, It would just take one careless sweep of a stick by a schoolboy to destroy these precious nests. The fragility scared us. Hoping for the best, with bated breath we returned to the nesting site after almost 2 months. There were no signs of any nests now. But there were many young frogs perched here and there!! We were so relieved to learn these little guys had actually made it!!! We found an adult female too. She was so beautifully camouflaged, almost impossible to spot from a distance. After I spotted her i had to go back and get my tripod. On returning I had to search for a good few minutes to find her again!! :-D We photographed a few young frogs which we could approach without disturbing the habitat. Enjoyed their company for an hour or so, wished them well and then returned home. :-) Previous post: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/190...
