Sometimes Frogs are very cooperative !

Yesterday before going to work i stopped at a local Park where there is some small and bigger ponds with different species of Frogs and Turtles. But it was cold (10C) and there was not many Frogs to be seen, i took some photos of a frog but not very good, after 30 minutes i had to go to work.

Today was another story, the morning was warmer and humid, Frogs were easy to find and i just choosed the ones that were more photogenics and cooperative. However at that place they are more nervous than at another pond i go also for photograpphing Green Frogs, i usually use my 400mm lens with Extension tubes (all the photos posted here were taken with that lens).

I started with this Green Frog, not satisfied because of the OOF branch in the foreground.

Not far away, this one was on the shore probably waiting for something to eat.

Watch your back my little friend, they were 2 on that mossy rock, the other one jumped as soon as i tried to get close. Fortunately this one stayed there. At first i wanted to photograph it from the side but it would have been difficult to get a good shot, so i took it from behind.

This one was very well camouflaged amongst the dead dark leaves, i liked the reflection in the water which adds to the photo.

Just as i was walking back to my Truck, i saw another Green Frog on the shore on moss covered rocks.

It’s a beautiful Park for photographing Frogs because of the different ponds setting, some are surrounded with Cattails and like the photos posted here where i concentrated myself on the series of small and shallow ponds.

Again after 30 minutes i needed to leave and go to work, will try to go again tomorrow morning and see if i will get lucky!
