[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The common frog, (Rana temporaria), also known as the European common frog or European common brown frog, is found throughout much of Europe as far north as well north of the Arctic Circle in Scandinavia and as far east as the Urals, except for most of Iberia, southern Italy, and the southern Balkans. The farthest west it can be found is Ireland, where it has long been thought erroneously to be an entirely introduced species.

They have come out of their winterhide just 2 days ago and are now singing and mating.

Hallo Pierre,
diesen Grasfrosch hast du aber früh erwischt. Ich war gestern auch in einem Moor unterwegs habe aber noch keine gesehen, weiß allerdings auch nicht ob es da überhaupt Grasfrösche hat. Die Schärfe passt, das Licht ist leider etwas zu hart.
Viele Grüße,

Bonjour Pierre,
Sur ton chemin se trouvait cette jolie petite grenouille bien vivante. Sur le mien une pauvre grenouille morte, ce matin...
Joli cadrage et un bon angle de vue. C'est presque le printemps !:-)
