Photo of the Week: Study in Green and Pink

Study in Green and Pink

Virginia photographer Mundy Hackett found this green tree frog on a pink dahlia flower in her backyard garden. Green tree frogs can be up to 2.5 inches long, and have shades of green ranging from bright yellow olive to lime green. The color changes depending on lighting and temperature. The frogs’ habitat is primarily the Southeastern states of the U.S. While these frogs prefer swampy edges of ponds and lakes, they are also commonly found in backyards. Hackett used a Nikon D300 and a 105mm lens.
