I spotted this Bullfrog sitting in the shallows of a small pond while on vacation at Chautauqua Lake in New York. It was midday and quite hot out, but the frog didn't seem to mind at all.

Bullfrogs are the largest frogs found in North America and are quite common on almost any body of water you visit. They feed on a large variety of creatures including crayfish, mice, insects, and other frogs. They have also been found with small birds, ducklings, snakes, turtles and even an occasional bat in their stomachs.

Hi Ron,

Your shot is stunningly crystal clear on the crouching frog!!
Very nice color and you got the right moment, because the moment it moves, the water will be murky.

I will call it a sunbathing frog ^_^

Great job

Just I say P E R F E C T thy LORD improve my Latin to praise all these shots, nice catch.

Hello Ron,
A very nice specie captured with excellent details, colors and focus. I like the superb details of the skin....amazing.
Thanks for sharing!

Excellent photograph of this bull frog with wonderful eye contact. Unbeatable exposure and with a bonus track of the reflection of the face of the frog in the water of the pond. Congratulations, Ron !!! A special hug for a great American friend that I especially appreciate. After this long distance from TrekNature, I send you a big fraternal hug from my beautiful coastal region in Argentina.

Hi Ron,
Beautiful photo, the exposure was totally perfect, such as sharpness. Composition's simple yet effective, and the colors are natural, well saturated. An absolute eye catcher, especially with such great double eye contact (reflection). A masterpiece, congratulations!
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Ron, this is the most beautiful picture of a Frog I have ever seen.
It is almost three dimensional.
Perfectly natural color tones with incredible details.
The brown BG of shallow water is just perfect highlight the subject.

Hello Ron,
Beautiful coloured Frog. Well captured. Good details and exposure. Against such redfish water, it looks nice.
Thanks for sharing,

  • Great
