Photogenic Frogs

Red Eyed Tree Frog on Calla Lily

Frogs always surprise me. Not in the “jump unexpectedly” kind of way (although that isn’t outside of the realm of possibility), but in how photogenic they are. Frogs can be seriously adorable! And I’m not a fan of critters in general.

A couple of weeks ago while I was attending the Workshop Summit by High Sierra Workshops, I got to attend a Macro presentation. Toward the end of the presentation they brought out a Red-Eyed Tree Frog and invited the class to take turns photographing it.

What a cool frog!! His colors are amazing! Here are a few of my favorites – and be sure to scroll down to the end for a “before & after” of this first photo – you’ll see why I cropped it. :)

This one may not fall into the “cute” category…but it certainly is cool! His eyes are amazing (and a little creepy)!

And, as promised – here is a before & after of the first image in this post:

Now you see why I had to crop it :) – I was shooting with a bunch of other crazy photographers, all pushing and shoving to get THE shot! Everyone was {mostly} good natured and decent about taking a turn and then making room for someone else.  I call that “workshop etiquette”, but that is a whole new topic for a different blog post.

If you liked today’s post you may enjoy this post from my old blog with photos from another macro workshop I attended a couple of years ago.

Until next time, my awesome loyal readers, have a wonder-filled day {afternoon/evening/whatever}!!!
