    Hello Nick and thank you so much for sharing this group of outstanding photographs . Favorite ones in here are the Painted Reed Frog and the Red Toad.

    May I ask what lens set-up you use? Recently I tried to take photo's of skittish Coqui frogs in the field and could not get close enough to them before all leapt away. Maybe my approach technique needs stealth improvement .
    Remember to take care of the enclosure and it will take care of your frog !​
