Nice capture of the frog Dapjwy.
Lowering yourself brought the viewer right down alongside him.
Congratulations!

Thanks havalotta. There are advantages to where I put the pond (near the top of a slope)...and instead of trying to remedy it, I've decided to utilize it. I plan to make it look as natural as possible, but also allow me access to the ponds edge from the slope end.

~smile~ Jeff surprised me by making it his desktop background (but he was kind enough not to crop it )...he told me it's his favorite photo of mine! This is the first time he's done that!

Thank you both.

Ya know, knowing that the water feature I'm creating not only attracted them but provided me with an attractive photo does make it all that much sweeter. Thanks for pointing it out to me.

Dappy> "Jeff surprised me by making it his desktop background (but he was kind enough not to crop it" He must be a nicer person than me who's not as self serving!!!! I cropped what I stole!!!! I have a 16" wide screen on this laptop and I wanted the froggie the center of attention over on the right since my shortcuts are over on the left.... I'll have to take a photo of my desktop with the 10 or so icons I've got so you can see what I mean. Anywhooo.... I wanted it fitting "just right" so I could get the biggest bang for YOUR buck!!! Thank you thank you thank you for my new eye candy!!! Herre's how I cropped it so I could see the frog and its reflection the best.

You did a good job of cropping it and had a good reason.

I'm glad it makes you so happy. ~smile~
