Instant regret

Tree frogs are known for their ability to jump but, no one ever said they were good at landing. I was photographing this Emerald-spotted Tree Frog (Litoria peronii) perched on a branch when it decided to jump and landed in the leaves. It hung there clinging to the leaves by for two minutes contemplating what the next move should be. It then let go with its back legas and pulled itself up with pure arm strength.
