A vanda orchid bloom provides a dramatic hammock for one of Key West’s curious creatures, the Cuban Tree Frog.

Lush and tropical Key West yields many surprises, especially if you give a close look. Here, a resident Cuban Tree Frog makes a bed in a vanda orchid. Cuban Tree Frogs are nocturnal, and during a rainstorm in Key West, their croaking can be heard but they are infrequently seen.
