Leapfrog 1

By teocali
A pair of Marsh Frogs (Pelophylax ridibundus) taken at BWC (British Wildlife Centre - Lingfield, Surrey) today, at an EPZ meet organised by Luke Parkinson. It was a very entertaining and happy day and great to get together with old EPZ friends and put faces to familiar EPZ names. Thanks Luke for organising this event - much enjoyed Smile I seem to have done far more chatting than photography, but was lucky to find the Marsh Frogs putting on a hilarious display in the pond. Just loved the expression on the fellah's face!! This is a full-frame uncropped capture.

Many thanks for your C&Cs on my last upload - always much appreciated Smile

Superb timing, Sylvia. Lovely to meet up with you today, it was a great day, I thoroughly enjoyed it. So this is the one I missed out on. Very well captured. I have still to download my efforts but am sure they won't be this good.

Great capture Sylvia. I wanted to attend the meet but had a prior commitment ( which in the end fell flat !! ) so I am not a perticularly happy bunny. Glad it all went well.

Nice one Sylvia, great meeting you and like you we seemed to be chatting most of day.....You made a big impression on us both and we've both come to the conclusion you're as mad a March Hare, but great fun.......
