    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.

    SS 1/200
    Av 8.0
    ISO 100
    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.

    Superb image Abhishek...the frog's head is the clear focal point and draws the eyes...the colour saturation, balance and exposure are perfect!
