So… what do you do when you find a ditch full of green frogs (wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pelophylax) on a sunny day?
Right, you ‘go life’ and have an ad hoc photo session :D – Woow, was that an exciting experience / esp. when they all started croaking and jumping around at the same time OMG

Here you go… just a few of the many shots I made that morning…
