Tonight I went out to take some pictures of flowers using flash photography. I noticed quite a lot of frogs in the pond.
I was surprised that they stayed put when the camera was close and the flash fired. Many of these frogs will ignore me, but I was accompanied by Max, our adventurous 14 year old tomcat, in this adventure
This frog was quite happy to allow be to get up close and personal. I am quite pleased with the quality of the image. The camera strap had a dip in the pond, but I am sure that it will clean up OK.
I presume that the frogs cannot see Max in the dark. Normally, when a cat is this close, the frogs are gone in an instant. Earlier this afternoon I had counted 24 frogs visible at one time. I am sure that there are more in the pond as they take refuge from the heat of the day.
