Golden Treefrog - Litoria aurea

One of the very well hidden members of the NSW forests is the smaller treefrogs.

These frogs have an amazing metallic gold stripe down the sides of their jawline, which is very hard to photograph correctly. In most cases, it must be seen first to believe it. As if made of pure gold.

The photos below show the frog sitting in the lower canopy of an exotic tree, but the gold colour has instead come through as a strong yellow.

Today's photo is a perfect example of how things sometimes take more time than first allocated. Given more time, I would have loved to work out a way to shine the golden stripe of the frog in today's photograph.
