STOPS ALONG THE WAY

NORTHERN LEOPARD FROG

N.Leopard Frog

I was surprised to come across this frog peaking out from behind some grass a fair distance from the water.  I later learned that this is pretty common as this species occupies a wide range of environments.  The frog remained perfectly still and I only caught sight of him because my attention was drawn to an insect close by.  I sharpened and enhanced the detail in Photoshop and made contrast, shadow and exposure adjustments in Lightroom.  I also added a post-crop vignette to darken the edges and draw attention to the centre of the photograph.

  1. Such a cutie! We were just commenting last night on how nice it was to hear the Southern Leopard Frog calls again in the night. They make me feel like camping right in my bedroom (it’s been cool enough on the Gulf Coast to sleep with windows open for a few weeks now). I miss the frogs. What part part of the US are you?
