Garden Amphibians

My CWS* was down in the garden this afternoon picking green beans… 10 pounds of them from the look of the pile… and other vegetables when she told me that she had seen two small frogs amongst the leaves in the garden.

Luckily, I was finished picking up the piles of shrub trimmings she had left in the driveway because, upon hearing this news, I headed straight for the camera!

These “fellows” are very small… roughly thumbnail-sized.

Here are the photos (two individuals, two poses)…

  1. Your CWS needs to get a raise for finding these! As always, you managed to capture enough detail to make the subject interesting. And, considering their size, these are very well done. For me, the wood Frog Immature is the best of the bunch. The detail is spot-on and the background not a distraction. A minor suggestion to crop out the out-of-focus foreground just under the frog as it does not give a good lead into the wood frog.
