Fireflies and cute frogs

Thanks to Matt (and Crystal) I have a couple of cool photos to post. I took them to my 'secret' firefly viewing spot. Not really that secret, but very cool. Matt had his camera and Crystal's tiny tripod. He set up his lens to stay open for 15 seconds. The initial tripod shots turned out okay but then Matt had the bright idea to actually chase the firefly as it flew. The following photo illustrated this effect.
We then went hunting frogs with my tiny torch. This is an amagaeru (rain frog). I love this little guy. These are the frogs I hate killing on the roads when it rains. We sat and watched them singing for ages. You could actually see their throats blowing up to make noises. It was like being in a Discovery channel show!
Thanks for the photos Matt...
