Well, every time I out went for a canoe ride this week I saw this very handsome frog sitting at the end of the dock. I tried several times to catch him and finally a day before the gold challenge I caught him. My daughter Shermy, as some of you may know her on the challenges made the hat and bow tie for me (she is so crafty). This guy tried quite a few times to hop away and I didn't even scream this time! All and all he was quite an agreeable chap and went about his business at the end of the dock when I was finished. What a funny time and experience. Hope you get a chuckle.

"WOW" I had to go out, and only saw my DPC home page, re the first second and third entries, and didn't realize that both Mother and daughter, are both in the top ten..... Way to go the Freeman family.....
Hope we see the day, when all three of the "Freeman" family are on the front page, hey Mike.....This is a great entry, and so proud of you, and your wonderful frog images.....

Probably the cutest entry in the challenge. I'm loving it! Nice lighting and creative subject matter. Don't think I've EVER seen a frog/toad (??) in a top hat and bow tie before, let alone gold ones! 9 from me. Wouldn't be suprised if you get a ribbon with this one. :)

I love this. And it makes me laugh. He looks SO unimpressed with the whole process. Resigned, almost. Love it.

LOL! Great shot. Very funny! Reminds me of the frog from the old Looney Tunes cartoons that sang and danced but only when he was alone with his owner.

Adorable... wish his little toe wasn't cut off... and the ridges of what he is sitting on are a little bothersome... otherwise... I think this is so cute :-). -8-

oh man, you did that to a real frog, didn't you? lol, how cute

tips: up the contrast and saturation, darken the fabric he's sitting on to the right side of photo so that it blends into the black better, cute setup and good composition

hw does a frog become so cooperative? My only criticism is the cut off to and the lack of a grounding element.
