Hey everyone...thanks heaps for the comments. I absolutely hate frogs...they give me the creeps. But after our floods we became inundated with 100's of little frogs...right across the town. They were even lining up inside the hospital corridors.

So this image was taken of my front patio and I was very brave....even as they jumped onto my legs whilst I was taking photos. I have another couple of shots that I like where up to 3 frogs were on top of the large one...but this one seemed to be more balanced overall.

Judi, Judi, Judi. Your determined to make this as hard as possible for me to catch up aren't you? I see where this is going, your going to build up a huge lead and then just coast for a while and see if I can catch up to you. Well let me be the first to tell you I will not be sucked in by your plan I'll just continue to turn out the same old dribble and keep you guessing as to when I'll pour it on and just blow your doors off. So there!!

Now on to the real thing your shot. I really like the shades of green and the bokeh. It's an all around great shot and very much deserves the ribbon you won. Great work as per usual.

All the best to you and yours.

MAX!

Great photo! Not sure if it has been mentioned, but there is a Doors song called "Peace Frog" which would have been the perfect title.
