    Here are some random pics from the last few months I did not include in my last thread.
    Desperately wanting to re-photograph the majestic Growling Grass Frog, I found some recent recordings from a small pond only 15 minutes from my house. Enlisting the help of a mate, we managed to find dozens in little time.

    Rains the previous day had also brought the frogs to the surface, as I managed to triangulate this frog calling from a flooded wombat burrow!
