07.24.2020 Frog Friday

A couple of guys from last Sunday after the Pink Waterlily and Autumn Meadowhawk but before the Eastern Painted Turtle…it was a good morning.  🙂

Seemingly always with a smile on their face. Caped and amused.

The other guy’s good side.

I could stop photographing bullfrogs anytime I want to…I can, really, I could stop.  Seriously, I could.  🙂

Again with the 100-400+2.0x Tamron full out at 800 with a polarizer.  The first at f/16, 0.5 sec, the second at f/22, 1.0 sec, both ISO 100 on tripod.

    No. Don’t stop. Love your first one–it looks so smug, and you even managed to bring us another selfie in the second.

    Frog Fridays are fun! (The caped frog seems to agree. 🙂 ) Don’t stop taking the froggy photos – they’re great and they bring a smile to our faces too!

  3. Wanted posters sometimes have front and side views. You captured what you wanted.

    Can’t get over how sharp the Tamron is, and how you instantly double the focusing distance with that teleconverter (+2.0). I also have that Canon 100-400mm push-pull model put away somewhere.

  5. Nice job of focusing to get those eyes tack-sharp. I tried a Canon 2x teleconverter on my Canon EF100-400 lens and it was horrible. I returned it and went with the Tamron 150-600 and it’s been sooo much better. You’ve obviously figured out the trick on the 2x, because your stuff is magnificent!

    • The eyes have it. When I magnify for focusing it’s always the eyes in the target…almost always. Thanks for that comment, Bob. Maybe it’s just the copy. I am using the dedicated Tamron multiplier. I used to have the Mark II Canon 2x and was disappointed. Just got a good deal on the Mark III but haven’t tried it yet.

    • Should be happy. All he has to do is sit around in the sun and wait for a fly to come by…and avoid herons. 🙂 If I post a frog on a different day, and still pursue alliteration, I think it might be Beatific Bullfrog. 🙂

    I’d be happy just to see a bullfrog — or any frog of any sort, at any time. I hear occasional plunks, but I’ve yet to see one, let along photograph it. I do see the occasional tree frog, but I’m having to depend on you for smiling froggies!

    • WOw, they are so numerous here it is hard to conceive that you never get to see one. If you are ever up this way, bullfrogs and pink water-lilies will be the order of the day. 🙂


  11. I am still chuckling from your post – I love every line! These green caped fellows sure look like they’re having a jolly time of it🐸
