setup








These images cover a two hour sequence.

I noticed the first Agalychnis annae tadpole had popped a front leg early afternoon. So I pulled a few tadpoles
and made a quick setup beside their morphing tank, then intermittently photographed the group focusing in the
one with his first front leg. About twenty minutes into the process the tadpole popped his second leg out from under the skin sheath.

Within the following thirty minutes the four legged froglet climbed the culture dish wall and perched on top.
