Watershed Park Inhabitants

What more appropriate resident for a Watershed Park! I am not a good wildlife photographer like Abraham and Salty are, so this is about as good as it gets!

This is a Leopard frog. He jumped in front of me as I was walking literally screaming "take my picture"!

This is an excellent picture! Clever at camouflage, this little creature is.

Great frog picture. Even though he so boldly jumped into your path, I'm sure it wasn't easy for you to get that close without spooking him.

Great capture and I love the way you have composed the shot, and he is pretty well camoflaged so well seen!! I love it when these opportunities present themselves, this is one of the reasons I like to try to carry a camera with me at all times. I was thinking of trying to get a igh end point and shoot which is less cumbersome but has the same quality as my SLR because I want to do more trail riding and it is amazing what you find in the forests! Photo ops galore.

And I am not going to apologise for being a bit slow on the puzzle, it is a woman's perogative to change her mind hmmmppphhh! LOL
