Nick work mate! What camera or camera accessorie did you use to take the photo of the tadpole.. Or did you just catch the tadpole and take the photo of it in a container?

Good shots Nick.
I like the crispness of the subjects and how you've filled the frame with them.

It's remarkable how different the two Diplodactylus vittatus are. One seems to have little to no vertebral stripe and the other one has a strong zig-zag.
Are they from the same location or were they found far apart?

Tadpole was photographed in a small glass tank
The spotted one is a juvenile Bushman, which is why it has different patterns to the adult

OK, thanks.

The tadpole shot reminds me of the photos in Marion's new book. It's a great way to photograph taddies.

Yeah a mate of mine had the set-up, which was well organised and made it easy to get good photos when the taddies sat still !
