Hello friends, if you can see, on the leg of this frog
there is an insect. Bobcat Celtick who was my 3rd
pointing dog (Griffon Korthals) was with me when
I took this photo, I had him on leash in my left hand
and in my right hand my rugged compact.

With Bobcat Celtick I have many photos like this
him with me on leash at my left hand and at my
right hand my rugged compact photographing
frogs, ducks, ducklings and their Mommy.

Bobcat Celtick your memory and all that we
shared together will remain forever in my heart.

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


«Natural History:
Green Frogs are quite aquatic although they may be
seen basking on the shores of ponds, lakes and creeks.
They eat a wide variety of insects and other invertebrates.
Green Frogs hibernate under water.»

Hello Asbed,
Great shot of this colorful green Frog. Very sharp and displaying excellent detail. Many people mistake this species for a Bull Frog. The insect looks like a Water Strider. Well done!!

Hello Asbed
une superbe prise de vue sur cette grenouille.
Bon rendu des détails et de la netteté.

HI Asbed,what a pic! The brightness is fantastic,and the sharpness too,not difficult to see the small insect of the tipulidae family on the frog leg. Great capture,i like it! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Hello Asbed,
Beautiful coloured frog and well captured in its habitat. Very good details and DOF. Like POV too.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice WE,

Great picture - beautiful colors and clarity. Sorry for the insect who had to sacrifice its life so that the frog could pose for you! And also for the loss of your good friend.

Hi Asbed,
If you don't directly mention there's an insect on the frog's left leg, I hardly believe anyone would notice it. Good shot, nice colors and textures on the frog, beautiful exposure control even with one hand. Congrats for the image and my condolences for the loss of your dog.
Kindest regards from Ireland, László

Bonjour Asbed,

Le cadrage serré met la grenouille en évidence. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails de la grenouille et de l'Insecte. La bonne luminosité rehauuse la beauté des couleurs. Bonne journée.
