I was out to shoot some bird pictures, but then came across this fellow. Must have looked funny when I tried to get as low as possible: bending down all the way and slowly sliding down the mud towards the water.
THe pic was taken during the evening hours and the light came from behind the frog, illuminating his body under water from behind.
Shot handheld at 200mm, had to bump up the ISO to get a decent shutter speed, thanks to IS.

i like the reflection of the eyes in the water - i wish the image were a bit sharper and had a bit less pixel noise

It's a shame the quality isn't quite there because it's great in terms of content and composition
