08.12.0222 Frog Friday Spring Peeper version

When photographing at MacLeod Field this past weekend, the grasshopper, I came across this little guy.  At first I saw a companion but mistook it for a leaf and when I took a closer look it hopped away.  But this one remained and I got to study it a bit.

The telltale ‘x’ gives it away.

It was fairly patient with me and I was able to get low and try a few angles.  This was my preferred view.

And a crop of the above shot with the requisite selfie in a frog’s eye.

  1. You could also have held this for a Saturday Selfie tomorrow or a Sunday Selfie the next day.

    Personally, the first photo holds the most appeal. I like the inclusion of the entire leaf, and the way it suggests the frog’s ability to stay put even on a drooping surface. The profusion of water droplets makes it an even ‘froggier’ environment.

    I really find the first photo appealing – the frog’s back becomes an abstract design, set off perfectly by the deep green leaf. Wonderful!
