    First time model - just sit there and do what you are toad!

    Quite a few of these around, easy to capture and photograph (using a simple, easy technique) - otherwise they just keep moving and jumping around.

    Yup.
    Not too long cos you don't want to hurt them.
    I've heard about this technique but this is the first time I used it.
    Worked well .
    Released afterwards (or perhaps I should have warmed it up in the microwave afterwards?).

    Thanks Eduardo and Miltos,
    Now I've tried the technique, I hope to get more.
    I've got some calcified coral and coral leaf so I hope to make a more interesting background next time.
    These were taken on the fly (just to maintain froggie interest of course).
    I was tempted to try to get it to eat a cricket as well, but that was just pushing my luck.
    Too many loose critters in the studio wouldn't impress the owner.
