Nice series, but it is a shame they don't clean themselves up a bit though, I'm sure David Attenborough always has perfectly clean and shiny ones This one looks like it has crawled through some peat and your wood shavings
Very hard to decide which one(s) I like best, I think, erm ... 1 and 5.
2 & 5 for me. He does look a bit unkempt Maybe he just came out of his winter burrow. I can see from these shots what it would feel like to pick him up.
Ribbitt! Yes, 2 & 5 for me too. Very nice.
They taste like chicken apparently But I like #2
Thanks for the comments guys.
Dave/Wendy, I think you are right he must have come out of winter hiding. He must have been in a stupor to let me get that close (although he was in even more of a stupor when the wind blew my backdrop on him). Still he eventually hopped away so I don't think any damage was done.
This from the man who can get an excellent, perfectly focused macro style shot of a pigeon with a 200mm lensYou were lucky Steve, whenever I have tried approaching one of these, it's off like a shot

For me number 2 pops out from the rest. Simple, off-center composition suits him nicely.
