I have a special spot in the park where I usually go snake hunting. It usually never fails and I can find at least one or two snakes to take a few photos of. Well, this time it failed, but now I can see why the snakes are there.....a lot of food. While walking through the meadow, I kept seeing the brush move, and I thought I was hot on the trail of a snake, until, I saw one jump, not a snake, one of these guys. These are probably my favorite frogs, and usually are hard to come by. The first shot here is technically the best and probably my favorite, but the others are here to show you their habitat and their ability to camouflage themselves.

Again, not the greatest of images. Just wanted to show their habitat.

That wasn't an easy catch - you have a good eye! I love the last photo and it's treatment especially.

GREAT shots TT. Specially the first one... I can see your mirror image in the frog's eye!

These are nice JJ :highfive: I really like shots 1 and 4. I'm really digging the fact that most of the eyes that i see in your shots lately are damn sharp :highfive:
