[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
When cold wind is blowing on Yamanlar mountain, snakes and lizards stays at home. But for frogs, it can be a nice weather for pleasant activities in the mud…
A good day to remember !

Pelophylax bedriagae

Pelophylax comes from the greek πηλός [pylos] clay, mud and φυλάξις [filaxis], guard. “Guard of the mud”, because it can stay long watching the mud… for preys.

Shalom Catherine,

Lovely capture of a handsome and active couple of Marsh Frogs.

We have them here too, but with declining numbers due to loss of habitat.

Enjoy weekend,


Precioso documento Catherine.
Las luces y colores muy reales a pesar de aparentar lo contrario en un principio por
su virado al rojo, pero el verde de la rana de la derecha confirma el realismo del conjunto.

Veo que la web está algo floja o poco activa: tú llevas en este trabajo 54 visitas y un solo comentario...

Un abrazo y buen fin de semana: Josep Ignasi.

Ciao Catherine, splendid capture of this fantastic maiting couple, fine details, excellent sharpness and wonderful colors, very well done my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

:))) i am remembering that day and of course this couple making love in a mudy water MF! i think we have to use polarizan filter to avoid such kind reflections from the sun light. And.. realy a wonderful day to remember in future:))
