Frogs among the ferns …

Frogs are a sign of a healthy environment. I found these two by accident sitting among some ferns in the garden and was lucky that they stayed still long enough for me to grab my camera to photograph with the 60mm macro. The first shot is focus stacked in camera.

I used a monopod to try to reduce camera movement but the second image the stack did not work, luckily the first image from the 10 taken was cracker sharp!

I stumbled upon a YouTube video last night that suggested popping insects in the freezer for two minutes so they would sit still long enough to shoot macro. I did consider catching the frogs and doing that but decided to leave them in the wild and took my chances!
