[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Been awhile to upload, but it is so busy in the schedule.
Thanks a lot for all the comments on the wood ducks.
Past midnight now...will be back in early evening to see all your images.

The bullfrog,Rana catesbeiana like many other ranid frogs, is an ambush predator. At a chosen site, the visually vigilant frog waits relatively motionless until prey appears and elicits its feeding behavior.

Hello Doug,
stupenda macro, fantastico POV a pelo d'acqua e meravigliosa composizione in un contesto naturale bellissimo, eccellente nitidezza, mi piacciono molto le tonalità calde dei colori e la luce radente che accarezza le superfici della e dell'acqua con magnifici riflessi.

Hi Doug
an excellent photo above all for frames angle. it does not have to be be easy to succeed to photograph the frog in this position. optimal the focusing that puts in prominence the subject very well on water and on the neutral background

Hello Doug

Wonderful POV for this froggy.
The eye contact is very good.
Lovely rich colours.
I really like the reflections in the water,
