Description

Laying on my stomach in the wet muddy leaves at the edge of a bog, I waited patiently for this little fellow to surface with my arms outstretched. Surface t did, but not in front of the lens, so I began to move my arms to the direction from where it now looks on, and when I thought everything was just right, the frog dove again. We played this game for about five minutes, then finally, I think I figured out it's pattern, as my little green playmate came up right in front of the lens. Without an active display on the back of the camera, I had no idea the the frog was in focus, but the cameras beep told me something was. This is the end result of my lay in the mud. :)
