Had a Frogtography session with Terry this afternoon. This was taken with the camera resting on a beanbag and shooting through the grass - it's pretty much just as it came out of the camera plus a small crop. The frogs are in amplexus - a mating hug - the female had hauled them both out of the pond to sit in the sun for a while.
