I gave myself a tough assignment today. Get the best picture of the little tadpoles in the pond possible. First I tried a high ISO, that proved too noisy. I then tried a low ISO and a 300mm full-frame lens on my Nikon D90 which should have given me 450mm. That turned out to be the best I could come up with. Turns out shooting through water is messy and a little distorted. The little guy in the upper right corner is about as clear as I could get. Still less than an inch long, you can see his tail fin and a rear leg emerging and his little eye.
Nikon D90, 1/800 second at 5/5.6, ISO 200, 170mm (28-300mm) - 9122
