Thanks Mat! Yes, the macro lens really does bring out the skin texture, doesn't it!

Thanks sorpa! I don't think they are poisonous... but I've never tried eating one :)

It's not about eating it.
Just touching it.

They are fine to touch... in fact they regularly hop all over my hand when I'm photographing them!

Lovely captures, striking colour. We only have two species in the U.K. and one of those is extremely rare, not fair :cry:

I didn't know we had tree frogs here any more. I thought the introduced populations had died out. Do you know - and would you be prepared to tell us! - where they can be found please?

Thanks for the comments Toby and Andres! This species is fairly common in Brisbane, and if you know where to look you can almost always find them (especially in summer, so expect more photos over the next few months!)
