On Saturday afternoon I spent a happy hour photographing marsh frogs behind a local bird reserve. Usually they're quite shy and hop away as soon as you appear, but on this occasion I was able to get very close. This particular shot was taken with a 400mm lens, but I managed to get a lot closer and took some with a 105mm lens as well.
The highlight was seeing a pair of juvenile tawny owls this afternoon. Sadly they were well hidden in the trees and the light was all wrong, so the images are not great, but it was lovely to see them. Kind of makes up for all the missed opportunities of the last few weeks...
