I visit Buxa Tiger Reserve, India, for documentation of arthropods. I was on the banks of the Jayanti river in 2018 and started walking along its shore. This was when I spotted this tree frog in a bush.
I hung around for a while, and for about an hour or so, it moved around in a region where it was a little dark because of the dense canopy. Then it came down to the road, where it spent another hour and jumped up this creeper fern plant. The frog was moving 3-4 feet above on a branch, and I lay on the ground looking up to capture the exposed belly.
I wanted to capture its overall beauty and unique behaviour in its natural habitat. It showed me a variety of unique postures, and I could record a range of portraits, out of which I picked this one, scratching its belly, for submission.[the_ad id="61677"]
