Pond Life

Just after i finished scribbling the blog i popped into my garden to check the bird feeders which are next to the pond, I noticed something on the rock in the pond and on closer inspection its a minute froglet complete with tail, About 1/2''-3/4'', So i grabbed the Nikon D7000 and the ultra sharp Sigma 150mm Macro along with a 32mm extension tube and grabbed a few shots from the front and side-smallest frog i have ever seen, The light was low as was the shutter speeds so i am lucky to get some sharp images, I can see why Sigma have just added OS (Optical stabiliser) to this lens

  1. Hi Dave,
    While down at Haw River yesterday (where Rte 64 crosses over) just before the business 64 exit (coming from Pittsboro), I saw a bunch of these. In fact, I first thought they were spiders as there are a lot of spiders in the underbrush there. They were moving too fast and trying to stay well hidden for me to get a shot. It seemed every step I took, they would scurry across the path.
