Frog appeared on our patio door, well after dark. Used 580EX flash and Lumiquest diffuser. Flash hand-held in left hand (off-camera cord), camera in right hand. Pure hell to focus, couldn't see much but outline but somehow the camera was still giving me focus confirmation (!!!). Got two shots before he jumped... and landed on my face! Bugger that I cut off his toe, but I was pretty happy with the result anyhow.

- Slight CCW rotation
- Cropped
- Final tweaks to hue/sat and curves
- Slight (selective) darkening of the BG and cleanup of some minor dirt on the glass
- Cloned out a few bits of crud on the frog's skin

Nice macro. I like the vibrant green color and the frog is sharp.
