Shanahan the Dalmatian Frog
by Mary C Legg (pogomcl) 
Canon EOS 400-D
Czech Republic

Photographer Notes:
100m 2.8 macro lens-- okay Shanny is not a bug, but he's smaller than many grasshoppers. He's about 3cm maximum and maybe only 2.5 across his back. He lives in the froghouse and hates photo-shoots in the frogbucket. A normal lens can't shoot him or his 4 froggy friends who are all smaller.(except Jagr, slightly chunkier than Shanahan)Shanny is an incredible acrobatic jumper and can climb anything. Jagr can fall off anything and is quite clumsy.

A wonderful capture of little Shanahan who sounds like a colorful little character. Congratulations, Mary!

belated thanks to all-- I just struggled through the Czech Foreign Police for residency after protracted agony of four months-- Shanahan is now out in the pond doing his thing as a true Ranger. And he was very, very charismatic little animal. Exceptionally acrobatic. ken- no problem-- can take the puns ;)
