    I took this photos at the National Aquarium in Baltimore and the National Zoo in Washington DC, except for the last two, those are my pets.

    4. Fire-bellied Toad (Bombina orientalis)
    Although its common name is 'toad', the Fire-Bellied Toad is not a member of the toad family (Bufonidae)- so it may properly also be called a frog.

    Really nice, i would be proud to have taken any one of them. I would have liked a little more dof in the first two but the first firebellies are really nice, just the right amount and the red eyed is superbe.
    Nice work

    Thanks, I tried to get more dof in the first two, but the frogs were so small, about 3/4", I think I shot at f11.

    For these I had to call my daughter over to come look at them, too, for I knew she would like them, too. And she did.

    We both liked Photos 1, 8 and 9 particularly, and she laughed about the Vietnamese Moss Frog, saying that one was "cute" (!), too.

    No.9!

    The pose and colours are great, and the cheeky smile and highlight in his/her eye help as well.

    i'd agree with the comments about too narrow a dof:
    f11... i'd never have guessed - i've never tried macro photography however

    fantastic series - but what was no.10 eating beforehand?
