Common Frog - Rana temporaria

By Mendipman  
Happy New Year to everyone.

I was trying out some ideas with the camera and the frogs in the garden pond back when it was a bit warmer, when one frog climbed out right just next to the camera, fortunately I had the right lens with a teleconverter already set up and amazingly the frog stayed perfectly still, so it had to be done! There was a small amount of editing to remove elements of the tripod that were in the reflections on one eye and a small crop to fill the frame more.

Best viewed very large!

Many thanks for the votes and comments on the previous upload of the Tortoise and especially to Jody (Jodyw17) for your User Award, so very much appreciated. GrinGrin

Lovely capture, especially in the way you've managed to catch the reflection.
