Such Characters!

On a recent trip to the science museum, I saw this Waxy Monkey Tree Frog who seems to be sulking and ignoring the world.


Or, this proud gecko showing off its underside.


And, this Isabella Longwing Butterfly enjoying with quad-fisted gusto a "bottle" of nectar.


What do you think? Do you have another humorous story to describe these creatures' behaviors?

You should have examined the underside of the gecko and tell us some interesting findings.

It is rare opportunity to have such a view.

I didn't realize how many people like frogs. Thank you for the visit & comments.

Rainfield61:I feel like if I looked too closely at the underside of the gecko, I would be invading its privacy. :)

Look at that awesome animals! I love 'em!

As for the zoom lens, a 500 goes a looong ways compared to the 200, I won't lie!

Your trip to the science museum opened a door into the wonderland to me. Thank you for the wonderful photographs. I enjoyed them greatly. I would even dare to say that your frog is much more than just a good photo of a frog, it as if revive the story of our own being here and now - that's the powerful symbol. I as if am reading the love story while viewing your work.
