These were among the smallest frogs I’ve ever seen. Four or five of them could fit on a dime.

We found these in a mostly dry muddy swamp. They were very hard to photograph, because they wouldn’t stay in one place for more than a few seconds, and after hopping they would blend in with the dark background nearly perfectly.

I’ve written up an account of this three-week trip to Australia here.
