Wildlife as Canon Sees It

Self-portrait. The frog was caught in a tupperware container which was placed upside down on the lilypad and removed when he had settled down. I expected him to bolt at first chance, but he hung around for a nice session.

Wish I would have thought of it. (I'd be too scared to get my camera wet though!)

I take it that the 5D is somewhat sealed then?...

Great idea. It turned out great.

Great photo! I especially like the reflection, very still, you managed it very well. I would have liked to see more focus on the frog rather than your face. ( A very minor point) I own a 5D myself, and you are far braver than I, sitting in the water like that. Well done. Alan

Ok, I'm confused. You called this a self-portrait. How'd you do it? Shoot into a mirror and then flip it in Photoshop, or did you have a second camera on a tripod in front of you, either with a selftimer or a remote in the palm of your hand?
