The Macro Frog thread
Posted By: Wild Mark, 01-17-2015, 04:39 AM

I absolutely love frogs. Photographing them has been a long held desire. Now I have the right gear to do the job well.

I hope to see lots of other frogs join this thread from all over the world. Please enjoy my starter photos. I look forward to seeing yours

All the shots below were taken with my new macro (SMC Pentax F 100mm f2.8 on a K30)

I'll add my contribution to this thread. The small frog was really SMALL! About the size of a dime. Both were taken with a Pentax K-2000 using a Tamron 28-200mm lens.

This thread has been quiet for a long time. Good to see a frog jumping aboard.

Wow, what a lovely frog! The hand gives a nice sense of scale too. I do wish the eye wasn't slightly OOF - there was room to shoot a more closed aperture, IMHO. Still: wonderful shot!

Thank Doundounba You are quite right. I noticed it afterwards, but was so thrilled to see it my daughter's small hand and just snapped away and hoped for the best... Just wanted to share it. Hope to get my Macro lens shortky and then I will try again
