Camera Critters: Bullfrog


Bullfrog

Photographing the local Wood Ducks hasn't been going well lately.  With the lower water levels brought on by the hot weather of summer and the increased vegetation I have been unable to locate the ducks on most visits.  On the occasions that I have located them it has been when they are already fleeing from my intrusion.

During my latest visit to the wetlands this big male Bullfrog relied upon his natural camouflage to conceal him as he sat motionless allowing me to slowly approach to the 400mm's closest focus distance.

The detail is stunning on this bullfrog. I can feel every bump and ridge.
Beautiful work Salty.

Excellent shot of a funny looking frog Coy... Looks like you did not disturb it at all. Well done. Let's hope the ducks will show up soon ;-)
