Well, you better put him back then!

Those 'hair lights' are very bright - I wonder if a CPL would cut that a bit - did you use a CPL to shoot through the glass?

The photo is outstanding - the frog fills the frame, is nicely framed, and the background is interesting.

Thanks, guys, and no I didn't use a filter. The lighting outside the glass allowed me to shoot without any glare.
