    I didn't have a clue what to come up with for this month's theme until a couple of nights ago. I was outside the house and I could hear a few frogs having fun shall we say ;) . The following day I checked the pond that has formed where we have been excavating the backyard ready for a new patio, and they had kindly left me a great big dollop of jellied eggs :D .
    This was taken on my Sony DSC W12 in macro mode. I cropped it slightly, adjusted the contrast a tad, added a border, resized it and finally a bit of unsharp mask.

    Edit:
    I've changed my choice of picture. I wasn't quite sure which one to post so asked my wife what she thought and she reckoned that she prefered the original. Now she has changed her mind and gone with this which was my first choice anyway (got to listen to her as she won't let me get my 350D otherwise ;) ). The reason I prefer this picture is because of the simplicity and the sharpness of it. The same description I gave above applies to this shot as well.

    Not quite sure how "raw" they are but that is an excellent shot Bowen.
