    A Visit from Kermit

    This little fella was a perfect sitter. Stock still whilst I attempted to stuff a 28-200 up his left nostril

    You were lucky Steve, whenever I have tried approaching one of these, it's off like a shot

    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.

    Cheers,

    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.

    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 lens

    LOL! And all wonderful shots, too! In my humble opinion, I especially like #1 and #3. The angle he is sitting at in #1 looks like the little guy is there to observe you. I like the composition of #3, it's unexpected!

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