First really sunny day in a little while. Couldn't resist going to the park again. Took the macro lens as main this time, and as I was walking along the lakeside path, I thought I saw the ground move. Must have been an insect. There is it again. And another... the whole floor was moving. Looking closer, they were really tiny frogs. Body length maybe 10mm or half inch or so. They kept jumping all the time!

This last one is for size comparison. Coin is 1p.

Nice pictures. The frogs color looks pretty cool with the sun. Almost like a olive green golden color

Gorgeous pictures!

And a really funny thread title once one knows what it is about.

I think a lot of the colour is the camera flash though. But the setting sun may have helped some of them.

For those not familiar with the coin, I juts measured one. It is about 20mm across, of just over 3/4 of an inch. That green stuff isn't some big leafy plant, that's grass like you find on a lawn.

I went to the park and saw two tiny frogs again. The first disappeared from sight in the time it took me to put on a macro lens. I found a second one, but that wouldn't stay still either.

More of them around on a shaded path this morning, so I managed to get a bit closer. At this point I wish I had that angle finder...
