An American Bullfrog (Lithobates Catesbeianus) waiting for a meal at Brazos Bend State Park, Texas, USA.

When I found him he was croaking and he stopped just before I got into position to get a photograph. I waited 1 1/2 hours for him to start croaking again and he never did.

Hello from the Critique club

An appealing image that meets the challenge well

You have to be commended for your patience, well done! Although these types of shots have been done many times before they never cease to appeal, he’s a beaut. Good sharp accurate focus and DoF that isolates him well with good colour and detail he’s nicely marked but those eyes – ah they’re gorgeous. Against all that green the red/brown markings really stand out, nice as they are I sort of wish he was all green because of the dominance of green throughout the rest of the image. My only criticism is that personally, I would have cloned out the stalk on the right hand edge it is a little distracting. Thanks for an excellent entry
