10.01.2021 Frog Friday

Ordinarily most of us prefer a head on shot and a look into the eyes of our subject…assuming it is a subject with eyes. It is good to see other views and I liked this look at the back of this bumpy fellow in Poor Farm Swamp.

I didn’t see any frogs while at Acadia but in a way this mimics the shot from Jesup Path I posted the other day with all those layers and blue sky reflection. The lighting here favored displaying the frog’s texture so maybe that can be connected to the rocks yesterday.Β  Or not. I like the detail along the ridge behind the tympanum and the view of the eye bulge.

    Now I know it’s Friday! (Frogday?) I like the texture in the frog and the colours in the water.

    Perhaps because Steve S. mentioned ‘scrumptious’ in today’s post, the word that came to mind for this one was ‘bumptious.’ It seems perfectly descriptive.

  5. Agreed: to be “comprehensive” we need to show a subject from different angles, some of which aren’t as esthetically pleasing as others.
