This frog jumped from a very high tree in almost pitch darkness.

We had one torch on, and my ex-girlfriend took the photo.

You should see my grimace as I didn't want the treefrog to go before I got this photo! ;-)

all my best,
Alan

Alan,
what a great story to tell

Kelly Marszycki said...

that must have been some trajectory -- wow!

Alan Summers said...

I still can't believe the accuracy, right onto my biro pen top!

From such a great height, and there must have been about half a dozen of us humans there, with one or two torches, just enough to spook most creatures, but not that tiny treefrog.

It didn't even jump away for ages, and then onto someone else, before leaving the scene.

all my best,
Alan
