Frogs

I promised DavyG I would post the frogs I mentioned in a post so not very interesting shots but we have about ten in the pond at the minute. Best time to see them is at night, weather poor so last night was the first I was mad enough to try.



Got this guy early and on the bank




Then his friend who put his hands up and came quietly




This guy was about three foot down and resting?




At the edge having a croak, but not when the camera was pointed at him.



This one was above the pond light in the heat!



Light was from a LED Lenser torch.

Thanks for looking

Re: Frogs

Thanks guys, all I have to do now is watch for frogspawn and move it into a smaller pond to stop the fish cleaning it up.

Re: Frogs

A wonderful sight Ed. Perhaps Spring is on the way after all. I can't wait.

Totally disagree, any shot of a frog has my instant interest. I am so impressed you went out at night for them too. Plus nice tip about the led torch. I wish I'd have had one with my mating hedgehog shots.

One of the things to lift my own spirits is a piece of video I shot in France last year of hundreds of frogs calling out in a reserve. Pictures are rubbish but the noise....

I've had a look in my local wild pond, but nothing seen, you are ahead of us.

look forward to the 'action' shots in a few weeks.

Re: Frogs

Used the torch as flash just bounces back off the water, some are paired off and moving about underwater in a tight clinch. Some short sighted or unlucky in love frogs do try to lock onto the fish resulting in an express journey around the pond. I am still surprised how loud the Frogs can be as on a still night we can hear them indoors. Can quicken the heart beat if taking a photograph in the dark and they start up beside you.

Re: Frogs

I like #4. Not seen any frog activity on our garden yet but it will come.
