[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
J'ai capturé cette image entre deux averses un après-midi d'une journée pluvieuse dans le parc Marie-Victorin à Kingsey Falls, au Québec. Je me suis servi de mon nouvel objectif zoom 75-300 mm Canon ouvert à 300 mm. Je me trouvais à environ 2 mètres du sujet, qui était assis bien tranquillement sur une pierre au bord d'un marais. J'ai rogné l'image sur tous les côtés.

Il s'agit d'un mâle de l'espèce Ouaouaron (Rana Catesbeiana; en anglais : Bullfrog). La grosseur du tympan (disque derrière l'oeil) permet de distinguer les sexes. Les tympans sont plus gros que les yeux chez le mâle et plus petits que les yeux chez la femelle.

Welcome to TN Sergie, Nice specimen and good composition, as Gert says it is on the dark side.

Nice shot Sergie
Good colors and nice composition.
But it a bit to dark.
Well done
Shadows in a digital picture contain allot of information.
I will make a WS to show

Hi Serge, & welcome too
I have no idea what your note says, but this is one lovely Frog Prince in the making! Love the muted colours, the pose, the waterlilly leaf and the hint of gold, telling us he is a prince. Yes, a bit underexposed, but this is so typically his environment, so the exposure does not worry me!

  • Great

Merci Serge de m'avoir fait découvert ce TrekNature. Je t'en suis reconnaissant. En plus d'y voir de belles images on y apprend des choses comme comment distinguer les sexes chez le Ouaouaron par la grosseur des tympans. Formidable!
Je te souhaite de saisir de beaux sujets.
Merci beaucoup, Serge.

Ah yes, memmories of my childhood days. Catching Bull frogs by hand was my expertise. Nice one here, Serge. Thanks for the memmories. Have you noticed that they are getting smaller as the years go by.? The use of photoshop to brighten him up takes away how he blends in to his surroundings. This shot was taken on a cloudy day. I remember well how they looked on cloudy, wet days. This shows what it looks like. TFS.
