  1. How beautiful, on a banana leaf ?
    I think the tag 'winter' might be slightly misleading :)

    1. I just noticed this winter tag now;-). I'm not really good with the plant life. It was definitely no banana leaf, but some other common big plant growing along the track. Posted 4 years ago

Wallace's flying frog or the Abah River flying frog is a moss frog found at least from the Malay Peninsula into western Indonesia. It is named for the biologist, Alfred R. Wallace, who collected the first specimen to be formally identified.

''R. dennysii'', ''R. maximus'' and ''Polypedates feae'' were once contained within Wallace's flying frog as subspecies. Similar frogs also occur in Laos, Vietnam, and southern China; these may be ''R. nigropalmatus'' or an undescribed, closely related.. more
