The frogs in my small wildlife pond woke from their Winter hibernation last week - lots of activity to be the top frog - the noise they make in the evening has to be heard...fabulous Grin This guy hauled out to chill for a while and pose - he even let me set up a silver reflector, to his right hand side, held with a plamp - thanks for the loan Terry Smile

Very nice Mike, the use of a reflector has made all the difference.

Thank you Susan Smile

Try getting as low to the water with the lens as you can - some very interesting frog shots can be had but it's very time consuming...worth it though!!!
