Photo description - ''Many tropical tree frogs (e.g. Hylidae and Centrolenidae) lay their eggs on the underside of leaves that hang over water, to keep them safe from aquatic predators until they hatch, and fall into the water. This is an egg clutch that I found hanging on a leaf over a stream along Pipeline Road, in Gamboa, Panama. Unlike in many species of glass frogs, there was no attending parent, so I do not know the species. I lit up the clutch from below with a flashlight, and love how the jelly captures the light, magnifies the leaf, and highlights each individual egg membrane. Note the yolk-filled bellies of each embryo.''
