Hyla cinerea

Post by r.edwards » August 23rd, 2010, 2:26 pm

I was kicking around in the backyard today, with a few things on my mind.....
Six months ago I purchased the new 70-200 2.8 II for some softball stuff (and of course herps) and wondered how close I could get with tubes and TC

1. 70-200
2. 70-200
3. 70-200
4. mpe65

......here are the results....

ohh....was surprised to see autofocus working like a champ with tubes and teleconverter
hope you enjoy

Awesome shots! Is that flash bracket homemade?

One of my favorite frogs for certain. I'm jealous they're in your yard. The flash bracket is interesting to me as well.

jake, justin,


the bracket is a Bogen Manfrotto flash bracket. I stripped all the long telescoping arms off added a small brass fitting and a swivel. For some reason I keep re-building this bracket a few times a year to adjust for each situation......probably 30 dollars in parts for the bracket and you could throw one together with a box of old parts.

thanks for the compliments!

Great shots. They're in my yard as well, but I haven't found them yet. Only anurans I've seen here are a bunch of Fowler's toads and a single Cope's grey treefrog... but I've only been here a month and it's also been over 100 every day. Not the best amphib conditions... My dad saw a bunch of cinerea here in the spring though.
