A great job on this capture!

I am not sure if I am more impressed with how oblivious the frog is of the mosquito perched on it, or impressed that you didn't disturb it to capture this macro.

I would have been very tempted to nudge it with a stick to see if it was still alive.... but I would have adhered to the code to not disturb nature.

Thanks for sharing this one!

Thank you Robert! Yes, I was getting VERY close with my lens on this and I was very suprised that he didn't hop away, but I guess I didn't seem too threatening. #5450490
