Bucket of Frogs

Melbourne Museum / DP Magazine
17 images

The Melbourne Museum was once a place for preserved artefacts and stuffed animals, but not any more. The Live Exhibits people have frogs on display, lots of little ones that hop, climb, leap, dig and swim. They're cute as buttons, really cute amphibious buttons. I needed to review a bunch of macro photography gear, so bring on the frogs.
