Garden wildlife 

It's been a beautiful warm and sunny spring day; the frogs have been busy in the pond doing what frogs do in ponds on warm spring days, much to the fascination of the cats who've been spending most of the day frog-watching. I saw this little fella - a common newt as far as I can tell - when I went out to try and entice the cats back indoors for the night. I hope he (or she) didn't mind the flash.

This shot also demonstrated the well-known achilles heel of this camera, namely low light autofocus. This had to be focused manually - and I have to admit I'm pretty pleased with the result.


Still frogwatching...
