Hey guys,

I'm back again with a frog picture I need help with...
Found in Far North Queensland, tropical tablelands -- on a tree.
Can anyone give me an ID?

Cheers,

Without doubt it is Litoria genimaculata- the Tapping Green Eyed Tree Frog. Very common in rainforests of the Wet Tropics. Gorgeous camouflage.
