Worked with this fella on a recent Macro workshop (with http://www.kaleelzibe.com/ ).  Fantastic little frogs, very calm and happy to sit around while you poke a camera at them.  Just need to make sure they are constantly kept wet (else they can burn in the sun), so don’t need much handling at all.

Thought Id take a few snaps today but just hand holding the camera (no tripod).  Set the camera to f/11 for max deptth of field and also used the flash to try and assist with the harsh shadows from the sun.  I just used on board flash rather than the speedlight.  More for ease / lazyness really.  the main objective was to see how decent I could get the shots in this rather haphazard method.  When operating in such a small dof, slight sway when kneeling throws the focus all over the place.  Still, some interesting shots but as ever they always leave me wanting to get closer still.
