Hello All,

I was invited today to visit some three frogs. These every tiny fellows are protected animals and placed on a red list to protect them.

These are so good, even for you.
The fingers in the first, reminded me of Gollum from LOTR

Magnificent creatures. You should see the new film by David Attenborough “in cold blood”

Beautiful shots! I spent an hour today standing on a boardwalk over a swamp listening to hundreds of frogs all around me yet unable to spot a single one. Which will teach me to bring rubber boots one of these days....

Nice work, every October I get about a week of these little tree frogs visiting my house. They seem to come out at night. I find them stuck to my glass door, hanging from plants, the side of my house, etc. It only lasts a couple of days and then they are gone. They must be getting ready for winter.
It is sad to think that they would be put on an endangered list, but frogs seem to be the first indicator of trouble. Here are some quick shots I took with my old *ist-DL, 18-55 kit lens and built in flash. Next October I will be ready for them.

This guy jumped onto my camera bag so I brought him to my back porch for better lighting. They are very tiny. I make a hard fast rule to never touch them directly.

Walter, wonderful series of well executed images.

Studio setup, or out in the field?

Natural species or pet?

Great work.

That last one needs a motivational slogan on the bottom...

"Hang in there fella!" or something similar...like that kitten poster.

I posted a reply in the other forum, but that doesn't mean I cannot do the same here...

Walter: these are absolutely fantastic images.

#1 is a nice back light shot.

#2 is such a classic pose! Magazine quality - no question.

#3 would be (as D. Bradley quipped) a great "motivational poster" image. Too funny!

Regards,
Marc

Hello Stephen,

I did never do a studio shoot with animals. All photo's I placed everywhere are real nature shots with wild animals.

I do however somtimes o a flower shoot in a light box but thats all.

Thank you all for the nice comments.

regards Walter
