    One of the best things at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens is the frogs. They raise endangered species of tropical frogs and there are some on display. This lemur tree frog was one of about 6 in the tank, but the only one that decided to wake up and climb about. Spent around 10 minutes waiting for him to face me and not be behind dirty glass or another leaf.
    Brilliant little frog shot!

    I'm partial to dragons myself. But lions are nice as well. Sorry we seem to have hijacked this thread. Back to real animals...

    Ken, that will do.

    One real animal coming up. Nearly every evening for about an hour shortly after dark our resident flying squirrel visits our squirrel proof feeder to snack on sunflower seeds. This was the best of seven. It is really difficult to manually focus a 50-200 in the near total darkness. Might have been a good time to try live view with the tripod, but that much activity might scare him off.

    I was wondering what happened to Rocky. Good shot Ken.

    Rocky is out there all the time. Caught him again last night. He was moving a bit in this shot, but you get a good view of their flat tail and the skin flaps between the front and hind legs. They are only a little bigger than a chipmunk.

    Glass frogs are nocturnal so they are rarely active while the botanical garden is open. This one decided to stretch for a quick moment and open its eyes.
