"Frog looks frozen and not natural."

and

"I'm a bit stumped as to why Frog's front "fingers" are turned unnaturally inwards?"

For the two who wonder about the frog's position/health, I assure you that I have never once done anything like refrigerate etc a frog or toad to get them to hold still or go into hibernation, etc. There's actually no need to. Frogs in general, when a bright light is shown at them (as my studio lights were) freeze. It's why folks are able to go frog-gigging... they freeze with the light and the people stick them with something and eat them. (I've never seen it done, actually, so don't know what they stick them with.)

I rescued this very healthy guy from my pond filter, plopped him down right there, shot him and then put him outside in a pond. All is well.



I agree that the feet seem unnatural, he is much younger/smaller than my usual models... but use this for reference. I think they just do that:

Frog looks frozen and not natural. Good idea though.

Didn't you have another entry with this same title, or am I truly senile?? (Or prophetic?)

This will do well and is fun. I'm a bit stumped as to why Frog's front "fingers" are turned unnaturally inwards?
