I've never seen froggie sex before. Toad Sex? Hundreds of times.

No. I'm not a perve... Toads are though, apparently. :D

Anyway... I was upstairs... looked out the window... and saw something splashing around in the pond. Tried to see what it was... it made about a 2-ft diameter splash zone.

Couldn't see.

RAN down the stairs, dodged all of the dogs (our daughter's dog is here for the summer... added to our normal two in and one out dogs)... grabbed my camera, threw on my longest lens and ran out the door.

Shooting as I approached... still couldn't see anything. I thought a bullfrog was trying to swallow a fish that was too large.

Didn't know what happened until I got inside to look at the photos.

I thank God for autofocus. :D

Anyway, the two shots after this one are interesting too... one when Mr Frog saw me... and then the next one.

Remind me after rollover... I'll show them to you.

I have been after frog photos for a while now, great capture. But, it looks like it's a pretty heavy crop which caused it to not be perfectly sharp. Wonderful image overall tho.
