How many of you knew that some frogs can change colors like a chameleon? I didn't... until now. My wife [somehow] found this Gray Tree Frog in our back yard. He was so well camouflaged against the local stone that I just had to get some pics. A few times the frog jumped as I was looking at my LCD screen, and it would take me a minute to find him again.

Shot handheld with the 100-400L at 135mm with a Kenko extension tube for macro. I was too lazy to break out the tripod. ;-)

Processing: Pretty minimal really since I didn't notice it was advanced editing until an hour ago. Slight crop, levels, curves, HSL and USM. Touched up with a tiny bit of dodge & burn, and desaturated two reddish pieces of leaves.

Fine capture. You don't get a chance to find these kinds of shots often. Good Job.

Very cool idea, doesn't really work well as a picture though because there is nothing to really grab your attention.
