[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This may seem a strange one for a serious nature photograph but I think it shows the versatility of these little frogs.

The brown brickwork is actually the supporting pillar of a carport, and the frogs apparently live in the pillar, emerging at night to catch flies and such flitting around the nearby light.

They seemed quite happy to have their picture taken but they are certainly not tame or domesticated.

How they get enough water living in a brick pillar is anyone's guess. Obviously they have to leave to breed but otherwise they seem quite happy where they are. I suppose it proves that animals are very adaptable.

This photo makes me smile! Three amigos. They appear to be quite contented waiting for their food to fly by. Well composed and exposed.

This is indeed a very interesting picture, Norman. The frogs are very sharp, and the exposure is great, showing the nuances of their colors. I really like the composition of the shot. Good job!

Nice colours.
Good sharpness and details.
Well done.

wow choose photo like the point of view and colours. The black background helps to make the green frogs stand out.

Hi Norman, this is the stuff that sells. Fantastic moment you captured here. IMPACT! it has. :) I think you could rotate the photo to straighten/level the wall. I would be tempted to crop a bit of the wall as well. The exposure is a tiny bit under too. Sorry for all the nits but this picture is so nice. I would frame it and hang it on the wall. Masterpiece!

Excellent capture. Makes a good laugh. LIke how to of them have got their hands together as if to say "yes we know we're interesting". Great composition and light. Good choice of panorama. Uh Oh. Smiley later.

This is such a funny shot, what do they look like! Fantastic. They all have such a personality, the one in the middle with his 'arms' crossed, the one on the left trying to hide and the third just looks really suspicious!
Great pov, detail and sharpness. Well done and thanks for posting (and for making me laugh!).

I love these little guys looking over the wall. What a wonderful and cheerful composition. Great work, thank you for sharing it with us.

Très bonne photo originale. La pose des grenouilles est fantastique. Ils ont tous une expression différente.

La lumière et la netteté sont parfaites.

Félicitations une prise amusante.

Big brother is watching, or is that brothers. Nice composition. I have seen photos like this on posters for sale in shops. Good details against the black background. Well done. TFS
