On a nightwalk with my brother and nephew we found some of these little guys. Fast little guys, and great at disappearing in the grass. Not bad for a frog about 100mm long.

Nice capture. That makes him a pretty descent sized frog.

Great shot! Love the Kermit face! wonderful colors to boot. You said this was another night shot? Man, do you ever shoot during the day, or is that out now ?????

On the nightwalk (here in Australia) I was using my usual clamp on night light set as per the thread. But you asked if I ever shoot during the day anymore ... to which I replied in NZ (see my NZ thread) I didn't shoot at night at all ... so therefore ... yes ... I do shoot during the day still :)

:) I did! I had to grab him out of the grass and place him in the open to get the shot.

Excellent sharpness...... If you kiss him does he turn into a prince?

Once upon a time there was a right dopey bugger from Mississauga who thought Princes came from frogs ... ;)

Nice work MA. I ilke the "shine"/ "gloss" that gives him that wet look, if you know what I mean
