Frog in spawn
Photographer: ANDREW MCCARTHY
Location: United Kingdom
Story: 
Every year I enjoy a mini-wildlife spectacle of breeding frogs in my garden pond and for some time now I have been trying to capture an image showing a frog in the middle of a clump of spawn. This shot shows a spawning frog almost enveloped by the jelly-like spawn and captures the 'atmosphere' of the event well I think.
