Copper-cheeked Frog Rana chalconota






And a noisy one... makes a lot of noise for such a small fella, it's only about 2cm long.

Dark-sided Chorus Frog Microhyla heymonsi

If I am correct in ID, this should be a scorpion spider



and a green katydid



and this is a terrestrial flatworm

I use a tripod with macro slider rail. A single flash (SB-800) to illuminate off the hotshoe and frankly, I would have preferred to use a longer lens (using Tamron 90mm). The images are cropped to illustrate the subjects better.
