Freedom Frogs

Two frogs on a lily pad

These two frogs were supposed to be Arowana food but Wuan and I did not have the heart to make them fish cuisine. Wuan released them into her garden pond. The sun was blistering. They rested on the lily pad. We thought they made interesting subjects for our cameras. Our guests were nonchalant to the intrusion as we snapped away. This has got to be one of the more fulfilling images that I have taken with this camera, the Canon Powershot A610, since acquiring it some time in November last year.
