[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello friends, here is my 2017 Valentine's Day photo
with this pair of Northern Leopard Frogs.

1/400s f/6.3 ISO200 18mm (35mm eq:100mm).


« The northern leopard frog breeds in lakes, ponds and marshes
in the early spring, but it is primarily a frog of meadows and other
grassy areas in the summer. In late autumn, the frogs return to
the water where they usually remain more-or-less dormant on
the bottom in winter. »

Hello Asbed,
Well captured this couple of Leopard Frog. Like their natural habitat and colour. Although colour looks bit rich and due to high contrast picture exposes bit higher than natural. Well focus both on them.
Thanks for sharing,

Hello Asbed,
A very fitting image for Valentin's day. I don't believe I have ever seen two frogs sitting in the water side-by-side like this. Usually one is on top of the other...ha ha. Sharply focused and showing excellent detail. They look like they are both staring at an insect and hoping it will soon drop. Yum yum!!

Bonjour Asbed,

Les reflets sur l'eau sont des atouts à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir avec précision les détails des grenouilles. La qualité d ela lumière embellit les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

Hi Asbed,this is a very original composition! A great choice of the Valentine's day,the frog in love in a very bright capture and magnificent reflections,i like it! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hi Asbed,
Probably oversaturated a little colorwise, but the funny composition itself immediately deserves the highest credit. :-) Seems like a couple who just looks out of a pool, into another one, which is located higher. :-) Absolutely the photo of the day for me. Bravo!
Kind regards from Ireland, László
