Of course he was facing the wrong way with the sun on the wrong side.

I did somecrawling around to get around to theside of the frog but could not get on the right side of the sun so these are with flash.

Wildlife are trained to face "the other way" or make sure there's a stick or branch in the way of the "perfect shot" !!

However, your crawlin around and flash has made this near to perfect as possible !!

Thanks for taking a look. Glad you liked the photos.

Equipment is d70 50-500 sigma sb600 flash and bogen 3221wn tripod.

These frog shots were handheld with the Sigma and flash.

Hi Zoom

Nice shots!

I also have that Sigma and it's a HEAVY lens, but very flexible. I must say I rarely use it now. However, have you considered one of those ultra light monopodes for use with this lens?

I also trained myself to use the lens handheld, and to my surprise the monopode, when lifted in the air, acts as a counterweight to the lens.

You simply have to be prepared to spend At least $100 on the monopode and of course, when you buy one you need no head for it.

Great shots, zoomn, demonstrates both your skill and the flexibility of the lens admirably.

Great shots zoom. Frogs aren't always the easiest critters to sneak up on
and get a photo. Good use of flash!
