Pacific Tree Frog.
Lens: D FA 100mm Macro WR Camera: K-70 ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/350s Aperture: F5.6 
Posted By: DW58, 07-03-2018, 06:31 PM

Watering one of the raised beds when this guy hopped out from beneath that leaf. By the time I got back with the camera he was back in the shade. I gently picked him up and set him on this leaf and snapped a couple of shots before he hopped away. Did not bother him again. A little bummed that I was at f/5.6 and not 8 or 10. Maybe I'll see him again.

Hi DW58,

I don't think so, I find that f/5.6 it is the right compromise between the foreground and the background a bit out of focus.
This gives the photo a sense of depth. Good also the rule shot of third parties observed. it's Ok!

Have a few living in the pump house but this is the first time I've seen one out side.

Thanks maw. I appreciate your feedback. 5.6 worked. Thing is he hopped away so fast I just didn't get the opportunity to see what smaller apertures would have looked like.

Thanks Em. As we roll into summer up here I'm guessing you're preparing for winter. I'll be missing the Frangipani.

We have a few of them living in the pump house for the well. This is the first one I've seen outside.
