During the day it’s much harder to find the frogs as you don’t have their sounds to hone in on, nor are they sitting out in the sun.

In one of the many ponds emerging around the lodge I found these two individuals – both clinging onto water hyacinth leaves. Both with relatively minimal shade, but excellent for me, though.

As the sun approached the highest point I suppose they both would want to take a dive and stay there till evening.

The skin and color is matte in the heat of the day, so the yellow is more faded, but the dark patterns remain.

It’s incredible how the surface of their feet stick to the leaves in such a way that it can simply sit here and sleep without any worries about falling into the water.
