You've only to enter the term "red eyed tree frog pictures" into Google to see an abundance of images on this little green frog. He has quite an inquiring face, but loves to confuse those in his natural habitat.
With the vibrant colour you can see here, it is no wonder that this picture is popular.
As part of Su's 'On Black' series, this picture was produced for a competition winner. The new owner took part in and won the "Best in Show" category of the Vitae Canis - Style to Rescue show. Congratulations!
This show is supported annually by Su, as it is close to her heart. Su has also produced the swan for a previous year's winner. Makes me wonder what the following year's winner will choose!
Much like the real creature the bright almost neon green of this little frog is as vivid in it's natural habitat as it is on the black background of Su's picture.
Commonly you'd see this nocturnal creature and it will flash the striking colours to thwart a predator! Although the frog itself is not endangered, it's home, (in the tropical lowlands from southern Mexico, throughout Central America, and in northern South America), is.
I'm not sure where the new owner has hung this beautiful picture in their home, but it would make a lovely bright addition to a darker corner.
Just remember you don't have to be a competition winner to own one of Su's art pieces. You can certainly check out the gallery or one of the links below...
