Happy St. Patricks Day!

Camera Critters
"Happy St. Patricks Day!" is this week's "Camera Critters" post. If you want to participate, click on the image above.




I know it's a little early...
However, in a few days a number of people across the globe with Irish heritage will be donning green in the name of St. Patricks Day. So for all of you, here is a little piece of green from Down Under!

These tiny frogs were photographed on Dave's parents farm, 500km north of Sydney. A number of them showed their little faces after a nice rainfall. They were tiny, around the size of your thumb. I only had a standard lens with me, and this was pre-digital. I imagine the results would be a great deal better if I were to shoot them today, armed with my digital SLR. I still think that they are good enough to share in celebration of St. Pats. Day.

Before I leave you, I'd like to give a "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!" shout out to one of our loyal readers (Shea) to pass onto his daughter - whose birthday is on St Patricks Day!!

  1. Beautiful photos of green frogs down under, Happy St. Patrick's Day to all,
    Thanks Manz.
    I always remember when St. Patrick's Day is, and it's not because I'm part Irish.
    Everyone be sure to wear green or you might get pinched.

  2. Love the green on green in these photos! A frog for St Pat's Day is definitely a twist! I wonder if there is some Irish superstition we Australians could adopt about frogs?

  11. I have never seen such a tiny one before. :) A very important creature and ought to be protected, lest it upsets the ecological balance.

    To all of you... thank you for the visit and the comments.

    @ Wayne - Good luck nursing that self inflicted headache you'll have ;)

    @ Deryke - I have no idea what the frog is... I may enjoy taking photos of critters, but I'm no critter expert - and I'm not a great researcher ;)
