    I went for a short trip to far east Gippsland and ticked off a few cool species of frogs and managed to get a couple shots of some cool reptiles.

    Awesome shots! I love the colour and focus points you used. The skink hatching was particularly good timing. The copperhead with its body raised is a great shot too. :)

    Neat!
    The Lerista is, by far, the best :lol:
    Along with the bell frog of course.
