    Default Image of the Month: November 2014

    The honour for the Image of the Month goes to the Image of Small Tree frog titled "Hangman" by Abhishek Jamalabad

    I loved the unique as well as comical pose. It also appears to be comfortable in the pose and it gives us an idea about the strength of its limbs-vis-a-vis its body weight. Congratulations Abhishek!

    The original text by Abhishek is shared below:

    Small Tree Frog (Rhacophorus lateralis) | July 2014; Near Somwarpet, Kodagu, Karnataka

    I found this frog lying on a path in a coffee plantation I was surveying for amphibians. Fearing he would get trampled, I wanted to put him up on a shrub. However, when I approached, he leaped to a nearby reed, missed his footing, and narrowly escaped another fall by clinging on with two limbs. Curiously, he stayed in that position for quite some time.

    I found this pose so amusing, it was hard to believe my eyes till I had a closer look. It was reminiscent of a Bollywood hero's pose on a film poster.

    Minor crop
    The reason I used Av 8 is to isolate the BG reeds from the frog. Undoubtedly the frog required more DoF, but narrower aperture settings made the BG distracting, rendering the frog hard to discern.
