Exotic, #WorldWatercolorGroup

Having mostly green, gray, or brown frogs in our area ponds, the coloring on this little guy strikes me as being exotic.  The red-eyed tree frog is rather commonplace in tropical rain forest settings of Mexico down to Panama, and they live hidden among the leaves of the forest.

They have suction-cupped toes to aid in climbing and hanging onto the plants, and when threatened these frogs flash their bright red eyes to scare away predators.  This cutie was a lot of fun to paint!
