Hello friends, photo taken today. This baby of the Green Frog
was as small as the smallest of my fingers. The bottom part
of my rugged camera up to the lens was in the water
to obtain this POV.

1/125s f/4.9 ISO100 18mm (35mm eq:100mm).


« Breeding is in June and July. Males spread out among
the shallows. The larger dominant males challenge other
males that attempt to enter the best vegetated spawning sites.
The male's call has been compared to the sound of a loose
banjo string. You will hear it day and night, but especially
during the first hours of daylight. After spawning, the female
extrudes from 1,500 to about 5,000 eggs in a film-like mass
among the surface vegetation.

The tadpoles overwinter under the silt and dead plants
on the bottom and transform the following summer,
about one year after hatching. The adults stay in the pond
and hibernate in early autumn.. »

Hi Asbed,spectacular capture of these frog eyes in the water,the reflections too are amazing,a lovely post,different and well done as usual! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Une superbe photo, j'aime bien l'originalité de la prise en milieu naturel avec le léger reflet.

Daring POV, Asbed.
Immaculate focus on the eye of the baby frog.
Well done and thanks for sharing this marvellous capture.

Hello Asbed,

This is a stupendous wildlife shot. The focus was bang on the eye and the reflection on the water - too good!!

Thanks for sharing this beautiful image.

Warm Regards,

Bonjour Asbed,

Les reflets sur l'eau sont des atouts à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails de la tête de la grenouille. La bonne luminosité fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne journée.


Hello Asbed,
I missed your picture. Quite well captured this Green Frog if I talk on its composition. Focus looks very sharp as well as beautiful colour. I like the way you have almost frozen the water.
But angle could have been better in my test; to get rid of green plant's reflection which just crossed on the Frog. To me it's bit distracting.
Thanks for sharing,

Your perspective from the level of the frog made this a very unique picture - gave us a frog's-eye view of the frog as its "family" would have seen it.

Hi Asbed,
Mysterious photo from a great perspective. Good sharpness and spectacular eye contact. Probably the blank space is a little too much at the bottom and also at the left, but due to the uniqueness of the image I can only give the highest credit. Great shot, congratulations!
Kind regards from Ireland, László
