Good morning....
Went out yesterday morning to try out my new camera and then again in the afternoon. I found this tiny little frog in the park. Spotted him by pure chance as was wanting to photograph the water lilies but the light wasnt right. I had to lean over the water to try and get a decent shot of this frog...he is the size of a finger nail. V2 the bigger picture
Have a nice dayGrinGrin

Can't see V2 yet but V1 is a wonderful shot.
More to do with the photographer than the camera I think!

Superb image, Colleen. Beautifully composed and a great POV. My favourite is V1. The camouflage must make it almost impossible to see as its so small.
