Laying on my stomach in the wet muddy leaves at the edge of a bog, I waited patiently for this little fellow to surface with my camera and arms outstretched. Surface it did, but not in front of the lens, so I began to move my arms to the direction from where it now looks on, and when I thought everything was just right, the frog dove again. We played this game for about five minutes, then finally, I think I figured out it's pattern, as my little green playmate came up right in front of the lens. Without an active display on the back of the camera, I had no idea the the frog was in focus, but the cameras beep told me something was. This is the end result of my lay in the mud.
Great stuff...patiently gained capture.Any chance of some exif info.?'There is no point pressing the shutter unless you are making some caustic comment on the incongruities of life. That is what photography is all about. It is the only reason for doing it.'......Philip Jones Griffiths
Wow..Thanks...I think!'There is no point pressing the shutter unless you are making some caustic comment on the incongruities of life. That is what photography is all about. It is the only reason for doing it.'......Philip Jones Griffiths
Nicely composed and exposed. Good timing also. On the downside I feel the focus is slightly off, with the tip of the nose being in sharp focus, and the closest eye being a bit soft. I know hard it is to focus when working with an SLR very low down. There is a gadget which may be of interest to you. I don't know if they are any good, but might be worth a look.

Thanks Maculatus, thought I wasn't looking through the eyepiece and had no indication or real control over which part of the frog would be in focus if any on this one. For all I know I was the matrix had picked a piece of duck weed as it's main choice. I am used to having much more control over this aspect. See my description for "Arms outstretched."
Thanks for your help thought.
