    Hi,

    I have a pond in the garden, and it is the favorite place of many frogs ...
    Here's 2 pics I shot during lunchhour with the G1 and Micro-Nikkor 200/4, handheld ...

    Raf, I think you have yourself a willing model, or two. Love the iridescence!

    Nice Rafael, they have the big happy eyes- wouldn't it be good if we could get them to smile:smile:
    2nd one with the leafy border I like the best.

    Today, the litle frog was sitting on a leave of my waterlilly, enjoying one of the first warm and sunny days of the year :biggrin:

    G1 wtih Micro-Nikkor 200/4 which, I feel, is the ideal lens for shooting this kind of subjects, because you can stay far away from the animal and not disturb it.
