Hail to the Chief!
About the Winning Photo:
The two frogs in the pond caught my attention when I was about to enter my studio. It was an amusing sight to behold---to find them facing and reaching out to a terracotta frog statue we bought in a garden store in San Marcelino. I took this shot with my Canon 20D with the Sigma 18-200mm to get close to the subject.
