Found this little guy this morning. He was easy to shoo because he was not moving a lot... I think he was starting to burn! The sun is pretty hot. Comments welcome! Thanks for looking!

I like the colors here. Wish I could see a little more of his eyes but still nicely done. Is that a bug underneath his chin? Lunch maybe.

Thanks! I was wondering too what was in his mouth... it's probably his lunch! There are a lot of bugs in my empty pool by now.

Thanks for the comment. I did not think of the push ups.

This is a pretty good shot. It's a macro and so the depth of field is very limited and that is why only his face is in focus. It is like a portrait. But the outline of the rest of the frog is clearly visible and helps to give shape to the frog and to fill the overall frame. If you desire moe focus, you have to stop down to F16 or 22. And maybe raise the ISO to 400 so you can handhold the shot,
