Hello friends, these 2 Northern Leopard Frogs
are forming the shape of a star or almost !

1/200s f/6.3 ISO320 18mm (35mm eq:100mm)


« The northern leopard frog (Rana pippins) is a species
of leopard frog from the true frog family, native to parts
of Canada and United States. It is the state amphibian
of Minnesota and Vermont.

This species was once quite common through parts of
western Canada and the United States until declines
started occurring during the 1970s. Although the definitive
cause of this decline is unknown, habitat loss and fragmentation,
environmental contaminants, introduced fish, drought, and disease
have been proposed as mechanisms of decline and are likely
preventing species recovery in many areas.] Many populations of
northern leopard frogs have not yet recovered from these declines.

Northern leopard frogs are preyed upon by many
different animals, such as snakes, raccoons, other frogs,
and even humans. They do not produce distasteful skin
secretions and rely on speed to evade predation. »

Hello Asbed,
Your Leopard frogs are very colorful and nicely marked. They are so lively looking, as if they could jump a country mile without even trying. I love their pretty colors and bright wide eyes. Focus is tac sharp and the exposure is great. A pleasant image to view.
