Prince Charming

By ColleenA
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!

Lovely capture Colleen -but what sort of frog is he? He's beautiful! Lou
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.

Very striking image. So sharp. You've captured the texture of his skin amazingly. Sleepy little eyes. Colour co-ordination of his yellow markings and the burstng yellow flowers is very clever, Colleen.

Both images are gorgeous. Excellent detail and exposure from the new cam SmileSmile

It's obviously in the right hands.

oooooh he is sooo cute. prefer v2 for the composition.
I have found that frogs turn their head towards you if make a whizzing noise. At least ours fall often for my fly imitation Smile
