FALL FROGS (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Frogs-2The leaves are beginning to change colour but the days are warm and the frogs are still about. With some luck it’ll be a while before they tuck in for the winter and I’ll have more opportunities for photos like these.

LEOPARD FROG

Leopard FrogThis is one of only a few frogs I’ve seen this summer, a handsome leopard frog. He stayed in the same position for the longest time, I hoped he would move forward a bit so I could get all of him in the shot. I waited for a while and finally gave up and continued my walk. As we were leaving the garden, I checked to see whether he had moved on. He hadn’t budged at all. I guess he was enjoying the day his way!

MORE FUN WITH FROGS (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

As the warm weather ends and frogs begin hibernation, I thought it would be fun to have another look at these wonderful subjects. There is a cove at the reserve that was a perfect spot to photograph a variety of frogs. After a summer windstorm, access to it was blocked by fallen trees so we had to go further afield for photo opportunities. It would be nice if the management of the reserve does a bit of clearing next spring so that we can enjoy these little creatures nearby once again.

FROGS 0N LOGS (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

On a lazy hot day, I passed these frogs hanging out just off the viewing platform. There was nothing much about, a few ducks, a few dragonflies and these two. We went on our way and on our return the frogs had barely moved, waiting it seemed for lunch to show up.

WARTS AND ALL (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

frog-1

There’s something about frogs I can’t help but like. There were a lot of them at our lake this year and by mid summer they didn’t startle too easily. A subject that stays put is always appreciated by this photographer. Frogs look composed and patient even when hunting for food. Their expression doesn’t change, they always seem to wear an enigmatic grin. I guess I like them warts and all!
