The honour for the Image of the Month for July goes to Kaleeswara Srikanth's image titled "Rhacophorus malabaricus".
There were some nice images with natural history as well as environmental images etc and I had to think hard, and at the end it was the unique perspective in this image that had the edge.

Rhacophorus malabaricus | Amboli | July 2013
I don't think this frog needs any more introduction.The Malabar gliding frog or Malabar flying frog is one the most adorable frogs i have ever seen. This time I spent quality time learning about this frog and its life cycles. We also spent a good time in documenting the various stages of its life cycle.More pictures to follow.
I have made many images where the entire frog is seen, but this time, I wanted to try something different where I can show the frog & habitat.
