[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This frog image was taken at the Schuykill Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The pond was filled with frogs but was also completely covered in duckweed. From time to time, the frogs would pop up in different areas of the pond, but more often than not, they would duck back under the water before I had a chance to really see where they were. Photographing these guys felt much like a game of whac-a-mole, but fortunately, I was able to get away with a few nice shots.

Hellow Matt,
A well timed and comical classic shot.Interesting with the leaves stuck on its face and the small insect or so it seems, above the eye.
erwin...

A very cute capture of this frog hiding in the duckweed. I'm amazed at the small responce to such a super capture. The focal plane works great as it draws you immediatly to the eye. :)

Matthew, this is a great capture. Good work. Have a great day, Bill

Sometimes ago I've tried to capture some frogs but they didn't want to cooperate... ;-)
