Leopold,

I have had he opportunity lately with a few frogs presenting themselves here in Western Australia. The First two are the Motorbike frog, which is a Native of the Perth area. Taken with one of my DSLR's

The last few I haven't been able to identify just yet, quite small frogs at my work at a mining company rail camp. I have tried to keep my VS20 in the pocket at night and ale to get up close and personal with reasonable results. Enjoy......

Hi,

thanks for sharing your shots, strange name for a frog "Motor bike", i assume it's because of their song ?

The other Frogs looks like Tree Frogs because of their toes and they look similar as the one we have here in Canada but certainly not the same specy.

Glad i inspired you to take those shots, they are so fun to capture in photos.

Nice series and keep-up the shooting.

Yes, called the motorbike frog because of its croak, resembling an off road bike revving up.

The other's I have to identify yet, two slightly different looks to them but same size, so i'll check the internet again later.

Surprisingly some of them will let you get close, as I had to with the VS20, using the close macro function.

The Kx shots were with the good old 55-300, as I haven't added a macro to my stable yet, but zero-ing in on the D-FA100 WR, mainly due to its WR capabilities matched with my K5II. The alternative Sigma's and others look tempting price wise, but that weather resistance for outdoor macro work makes a fair bit of sense, as I would assume that there is massive potential in inclement weather shooting.

All the best with your Nat Geographic work and workshop...........always good to see your shots on the forum.
