    That looks terrific! The only thing I'd say is to put something like leaf litter or sheet moss over the substrate to help keep it from sticking to the frogs, though they look to be pretty clean as it is.

    Please give us updated pics after another few weeks so we can watch the jungle grow

    It can be hard to capture the mood of low lighting. If your camera has a manual exposure mode, you can muck around with that, otherwise it hopefully has "Exposure Compensation" or "Exposure Bias" that you can fiddle with. A tripod or something stable to set the camera on and use of the self timer will be a good idea as a long exposure will probably be needed.


    There are places you can order leaf litter, but it's not an urgent thing if you'll have a place to collect it yourself later in the season

    I'm sure there are many others (I'm lucky to be able to collect it myself so I've never had to buy any), but here's two I know of off hand:

    Forum member JimO, his latest "for sale" listing of litter is from last fall:

    Fresh Crop of Magnolia Leaves

    Josh's Frogs always seems to get good reviews:
