Yes number two is the best IMHO.  The large aperture selected has essentially isolated the frog as the main focus point.

BTW I like all the pictures....but WRT composition the other pics also isolate other, less interesting, features ( eg rocks, sticks, etc...).  I have started to learn this in my work....some of my best pics seem to fill the frame with a single point of interest. 

Of course I have seen many great pics that have several points of interest that "lead" your eye in a pleasing manner.  For your pics I would almost consider this a portraiture...therefore a large aperture often works the best.

Thanks for sharing...

The place where a shot these is a wooded area in Wisconsin that has a spring fed creek running through it.  As you go deeper in the woods, rock bluffs surround you on all three sides and there's a small waterfall where the trail ends.  It's awesome, there are frogs everywhere.
