    Nice catch! You always know you have a healthy garden with these little guys around.

    As you said, they are Littoria fallax, though it's more commonly called the Eastern Sedgefrog around Brisbane. Lots of different names for them I think. They vary in colour a lot, but the give away is the dark stripe from nostril through the eye, and white stripe from below eye to shoulder.

    Thank you so much for that Info.

    I am surprised at the variation in colours of all the frogs in our Garden

    Took me weeks of searching to find this was indeed a Green Tree Frog and a large one too.
    It stayed around for a while I named it sleepy as I often seen it asleep in the garden.
    Not that morning though it was up there greeting the Sun though quickly went down
    When it seen me coming with the Camera..

    These are gorgeous Mary Anne, so tiny and delicate and much different from the Barking Frogs we have here at home.

    Frogs amaze me. There's not a watercourse for miles around here, yet somehow these frogs have found their way to our place with its teeny weeny pond.

    Thank you Cat and yes it is.

    And Helen Thanks also. Yes they are so tiny and delicate so much so that I have to keep a sharp lookout when I prune anything as I almost cut one of the green ones in half once I just managed to see its eye at the last minute.. Since we added a Horse Bowl as I call it, it holds 60 litres of water and has a couple of pots of waterlilies in it we have had many more in the garden too.

    Thanks Mal we do get the odd critter here.. Last week it was a taipan and a green tree snake.
    After looking at the News tonight they say that Spiders are our next worry.
    I prefer the snakes at least I can see them
