Very nicely done, lovely photo!

I am still a beginner in the frog department, but have accumulated a few photos over the past year or so which can be viewed on our site. Always good to get frog photography tips from other guys. <!-- s:yes: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/yes.gif" alt=":yes:" title="Yes" /><!-- s:yes: -->

Well
This was tricky.

Light at night is awful. Was not getting any decent shutter speed.

I eventually scooped the frog up carefully in an ice cream container and placed it in the garden along the edge f our driveway where I found him.

I got the car out and use a game viewing spotlight to illuminate the subject slightly from behind so as not to be too bright for the frog and then shot this at ISO 10 000 (and this is with no noise reduction)
