There are certain families, certain genus, and certain species that seem to trump all others. They’re like jewels among the mountains, hidden and submerged within. You search through the common species and hike deep into rich isolated ecosystems, and if you’re lucky, you’ll find one of these glorious jewels. These species are of incomparable beauty and magnificence. It's the possibility of being blessed by coming across these jewels that drives my endless quest and tedious searches for them, and when at last found, quenches a long time thirst that leaves my soul in a tranquil and satisfied state. My raw and fiery passion to see and discover the world's most astonishing species is partly subdued at first gaze of the majesty before me. There’s nothing like getting the perfectly composed shot of the perfectly comprised creatures of God’s immense and exaggerated beauties.... I believe this endangered Pine Barrens Treefrog (Hyla andersonii) from this past June can certainly be classified as one of them.
