I think frogs are cool too. I can't believe I actually got a good photo of this little guy. The light was terrible and I didn't have a tripod with me.
I appreciate the fave. :hug: Have a great weekend! :)

Everytime I see one of those frogs in a zoo or aquarium, the glass is usually so filthy that I can't get a good picture. :(

I love what Duck of Death said about the realism in the amount of detail you can see. I wouldn't like it as well if you could, for example, see his little eyeball more clearly. I see it with a painter's eye :-) Not the photographer eye lol
