    This is a poisonous frog of some kind... I think, taken at a butterfly farm. Subject is behind glass and very small (approx 2cm long), image is not cropped. Taken on Fuji S2 with 105mm nikon micro lens.

    That's an amazing shot to be behind glass. I've never understood how such a shot doesn't show reflections. We continue to see great shots with that lens. Well done.

    Cheers Frank, I was quite supprised by thae lack of reflections as well. I don't know if it helped but the settings I used were:

    ISO 100
    F45 (ish)
    6 seconds
    Gitzo Tripod

    I was lucky to catch him with the long exposure because he moved off to the back of the tank alomst the second the exposure finished.
     
  4. I love the variety in the color of frogs. You have shone us yet again another color. Well done. I assume you were as close to the glass as you could get to cut down the reflections?

    I was but it was at quite an angle too so I expected reflections a plenty. I think it may have been because the place was quite gloomy (hense the 6 second exposure) and so not much light to reflect.
     
  6. Nice of it to stand still for 6 seconds! Obviously posing just for you.

    Nice lighting considering it is in a glass confine. Well captured.

    Regards,
