A random frog
Lens: Quantaray 70-300mm macro Camera: Pentax k-x ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/125s Aperture: F22 

Pentax k-x, Quantaray 70-300mm macro at 300mm f/22 1/125s ISO 100. Yongnuo 560-ii flash. It was pretty dark when I took this so I held a small flashlight in my mouth and pointed it at the frog to focus, then flashed him.

Pretty random frog indeed. Good use of AF and flash, looks tack-sharp with eye perfectly in focus. Looks like something I would see in a nature magazine, well done

@Na_Horuk is right... tack sharp eyes. I wonder if lowering camera so you are more on level with the frog would make this a better shot! Get lower and bounce the light/flash off of something and you'll start to get a cool effect!

I actually have a few shots of the camera literally on the ground. Unfortunately since the frog was only inches away from a garbage can, the shot was rubbish
